3)In a kadai,add the cooked dal,jaggery in medium flame.As the jaggery starts to melt add coconut and peeled cardamom/elachi(I used with peel for extra flavor,but takes a little time while blending).

4)Keep stirring till the jaggery melts and you start getting nice aroma,may be for 5 min.Make sure you don't burn the bottom part.

5)Let it come to room temperature.Then go ahead and blend it to a thick smooth paste.Now the filling ie,hoorana is ready.

Note:Some people use chana dal instead of toor dal.Both taste great.But I love it with toor .
