Rice Flour Thekua


Hello friends. Today I’m sharing with you a delicacy of Bihar. It’s Rice Flour Thekua. It’s really a great sweet dish and you can make it very easily.


  1. Rice Flour – 400 gms.
  2. Jaggery powder -200 gms.
  3. Vegetable oil – 1 tsp.
  4. Warm water – to make a slight hard dough.
  5. Vegetable oil – for frying.


Step 1

Take the rice flour in a bowl. Mix the jaggery powder in some lukewarm water. Add 1 tsp of oil to the rice flour and mixing the jaggery water in it, knead a slight hard dough from it.

Step 2 

Now taking small lumps of the dough in your hand(you can grease your hands with some oil to avoid sticking)make a boat shape out of the dough as shown in the picture. You can alternately make any shape as you want from the dough. Keep them on a plate. You can grease the plate beforehand with little oil as the thekuas tend to stick to the plate.

Step 3

Heat sufficient oil in a kadhai. When it gets hot drop the thekuas one by one in the oil. Fry them till lightly browned. Take them out on a tissue paper.

Our Rice Flour Thekuas are ready. Serve them with the ice cream of your choice.
