Khejur Pitha



Semolina/Shuji  1 cup

Flour  1/2 cup

Egg- 1

Sugar   1/4 cup or your taste

Salt  1/8 tsp.

Clarified butter/Ghee/oil- 1 tbsp.

Baking powder  1/4 tsp.

Warm milk  4 tbsp.

Oil   for deep fry



Take shuji, flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and ghee in a large bowl, and mix it well.

Now add the egg and knead the dough. If dough is too dry spread milk and knead it again. Dough must not be too dry or too soft. It should be soft enough so that you can make balls with that. If it is not necessary do not use milk.

Make small balls from the dough. Take one ball and shaped it like an egg, then spread it on top of a colander thinly and start to fold from one end and finish it to another end and close it. In the same process make all the pitha.

Now heat oil in a pan. When oil is hot enough, add 3/4 pithas into it, stir it and fry it slowly until it turns into a deep golden brown colour all over and then take it out from oil and place it on a paper tissue.

Fry rest of the pitha in the same process and serve it hot or cold.
