I was very excited to get this rocking girl award from SRA of 'When my soup came alive'. Thank you very much Sra.
Felt really happy to receive the award and thought I would post a sweet for this. Happened to see this 'paal poli' recipe form viji's blog and decided to try it out. It turned out very well and even my husband who doesn't like sweets much, loved it.Thanks viji for the wonderful recipe.
whole milk- 6 cups
sugar- 1/2 cup or acc to taste
pistachios- 10 0r nuts of ur choice - crushed coarsely
saffron- a few strands
cardomom powder- 1/4 tsp
maida- 1/2 cup
rava- 1/2 cup
salt - a pinch
ghee- 1 tsp
oil for deep frying
Knead maida and rava into a stiff dough using little water. ( viji suggests to beat the dough with roller pin to make it soft.) Keep aside for half an hour.
Boil milk in a heavy bottomed pan and add saffron and pistachios to it . Simmer the flame for 8 to 10 minutes or till the milk thickensa bit and add sugar to it.
Roll out the dough into very small and thin puris . I made it in the size of paani puris(u can make into bigger size too or in roll out into triangle shapes as, viji did). Deep fry in hot oil .
Add the milk to the deep fried puris . Let it cool for a couple of hours and refrigerate. serve cold.
I would like to pass on this Award to Suganya of 'Tasty palettes', 'Menu today',and Richa of 'As dear as salt'.
