One of the savory delicacies that is mainly made for Diwali/ Janmastami/ Ganesh Chaturthi. This one is a keeper with the goodness of butter, a hint of cashews and rice flour. Homemade deep fried ones are much healthier and better than the over expensive store brought ones. This one I made for Janmashtami and was very happy with the results.
Sharing the recipe here:
Rice Flour: 4 cups
Bengal Gram Flour: 2 cups (powdered)
Salt to taste
Butter: 2-3 tbsp
Cashews:2 tbsp. (Powdered) See Notes
Cumin Seeds: 1 tsp
Sesame seeds: 1 tsp
Water as needed.
Powder the Bengal Gram Flour and cashews.
Take a pan add the flour and cashew powder and the sesame seeds, salt and water to make soft dough.
Take the mold, grease the star plate. Fill with dough.
Test the oil and when hot press and fry in medium flame till golden brown.
Do the same for the remaining dough.
Store in an airtight container.
Instead of cashews I used the Nutty Yogi Cashew butter, yummy and awesome. The goodness of butter and cashew together is handy when you run out of cashews/ butter. Do try and I’m sure you will not regret using.
Can be used as a spread on breads too.
