How to Make Pathir Pheni

  • In a bowl, mix the powdered rava, 2 tsp ghee, salt and mix well to turn into a crumb like texture.
  • Knead everything as a smooth dough with enough water, cover the bowl with a cloth and keep aside for an hour.
  • Meanwhile beat together the ghee, rice flour, as a smooth paste.
  • Pinch the dough into 4-5 balls, roll them into thin puris.
  • Apply enough rice-ghee paste to the rolled puris, place one over another rolled puris, make a layer.
  • Roll the layered puris as a log, cut the log into 1inch pieces, and roll out each piece as thin puris.
  • Heat oil for deep-frying, fry each puris until they get fried, take care not to change the colour.
  • Drain the fried puris with a paper towel.
  • While serving sprinkle enough powdered sugar and serve it with badam milk.
