JAGGERY SWEET MEATS
Hello and welcome dear friends. Today I’m sharing a sweet delicacy of Bihar made from refined flour and jaggery which is made for special occasions and is a great treat for kids and everyone else. So let’s start with it—
- Refined flour (maida) – 400 gms.
- Jaggery powder – 1 1/2 cup.
- Cardamom – 2-3
- Water – according to need.
- Vegetable oil – 2 tbsp.
- Vegetable oil -for frying.
Take the given amount of refined flour and add 2 tbsp of vegetable oil to it. Then add water to make a firm dough.
Take a little bit of dough and make a ball from it. Now flatten the ball with a rolling pin to make a small chapati-like shape.
Now make slits on the chapati that you have made from one side to the other. Now roll the chapati from one corner to meet the other and press on ends of the chapati so that they stick together.
Heat some oil in a vessel and fry these rolls in it till they turn pinkish. Drain out the excess oil on a tissue paper.
Now heat some water in another vessel and add the given amount of jaggery powder to it. Stir it and let it get a bit thicker.
When the liquid has become thicker, drop in the fried rolls in it and coat each side of roll properly in the jaggery mixture. Now turn the gas off and let it dry.
The fried rolls in jaggery or ‘Meethe Karele’ are ready. They can be had as a sweet snack.
