Ingredients

Number of serving: 8
1 1/2 cup Whole Wheat Flour

1/4 cup Semolina ( Sooji / Rava)

1/2 cup Sugar

1/2 cup grated Jaggery

1/2 tsp Cardamom powder

1 tsp fennel powder

1/2 cup grated Coconut

2 tbsp Ghee

1/2 cup warm Milk to knead

Oil for deep frying OR

if you are baking it : A pinch of Baking Soda.

Preparation

  • Mix all the ingredients and knead into a stiff dough. Keep aside for 20 min. You can use more milk to knead if it's required.
  • Cut into desired shapes and size. I used a cookie cutter for the same.
  • Heat oil in a wok and deep fry all the thekuas in batches. Best enjoyed warm, crispy and flavourful. Could be kept in an air tight container for upto 2 weeks.
  • For baking, just mix baking soda while kneading and bake in a preheated Oven at 180 degrees for 20 min untill golden on top. Dust with some icing sugar before serving..
