Ingredients

How to Make Biri Pitha

  • For Filling:
  • Soak dal in water for 3-4 hours. Drain well.
  • Add salt and grind into a stiff smooth batter, using very little ice cold water. This will prevent the dal from getting hot when ground in mixer and keeps it light.
  • Add rest of the ingredients.
  • For Covering:
  • Boil water with salt.
  • Add semolina, a little at a time, stirring all the time.
  • Cook till it forms a firm paste.
  • Cool and knead till smooth like chapatti dough (sprinkle some water if necessary).
  • Divide the covering into lime sized balls and shape them into tiny cups.
  • Place some filling in the centre.
  • Pleat the sides to partially enclose the filling.
  • Steam them for 15 minutes.
  • Serve hot with chutney.
