As the days get shorter, I get lazier is probably in the correct ratio!...well not really, but still so many things to do and shopping ;) has been keeping me away....I am trying to click pictures before the sun goes down and that's a real pain....as I don't have my light box made (again) as yet...which maybe now since its a sign, by the sun setting so soon, that i should go ahead and make one again!.....only problem is where can I keep it safe, without my kids getting to it!!....IN THIS TINY HOUSE!!!
Coming to the recipe, this is also one of the naivedhyam offered to God for Lakshmi Pooja. It is kind of different since it has rava, maida and coconut, and most of all its deep fried.
What doesn't taste good when its Deep fried!!...I am sure Gods love it too! :)
Anyways...the fresher the dough made...the better, so that it doesn't fall apart in the oil.
Kneading the dough well also helps in not falling apart.
The traditional way for this to be made is deep frying, but if you don't want to, then surely try the shallow fry. Just brown it on both sides.
1/2 cup ravva
1/2 cup maida, all purpose flour
1/2 cup fresh coconut, grated
1/2 to-3/4 cup bellam, jaggery
pinch of cardamom powder
1-2 tbsp ghee, neyyi
water to need to dough
Oil for Deep frying
Roast the rava, for 2 min.
Mix this with maida, freshly grated coconut, grated jaggery, elaichi powder and neyyi.
Use slightly warm water to mix...and knead for a aleast 5 mins. Keep aside for 10 minutes.
Heat oil in a kadai or if shallow frying, in a open pan.
Take small pieces of the dough, flatten it in yor palms, using tiny bit of ghee or oil.
Fry till they are golden brown on both side. Remove onto a paper napkin.
Serve as Naivedhyam, serve warm if possible.
