How to Make Kajaa puri

  • Mixed rice flour and butter to make a paste.
  • Mix maida with butter and baking powder.
  • Crumble well.
  • Slowly, add water and knead to make a pliable dough.
  • It should be soft and not stiff.
  • Knead till you get a smooth texture; cover and keep aside for an hour.
  • After an hour make small balls of the dough.
  • Roll out each ball into very thin chapattis and spread the rice-butter paste on each of them.
  • Put each one above the other then roll them together like a mat.
  • Cut the roll into one-inch pieces and press each piece down into a thin poori.
  • Make pooris with the entire roll.
  • Making sugar syrup:
  • In a pan add water and sugar and let it boil to a one string consistency.
  • Keep aside.
  • Heat oil in the pan and fry the pooris until they are golden in colour.
  • Put the pooris in the syrup and let the puris absorb the syrup for a while.
  • Remove and serve.
