  • Rice flour – 1cup here I used store brought
  • Jaggery – ½ cup
  • Water as required for melting the jaggery
  • Oil for deep frying

  • If you are using homemade rice flour, you can skip the above step.
  • In a saucepan dissolve jaggery with water and cook to a thick syrup.
  • Once the syrup is thick, slowly add the rice flour and mix well without any lumps.
  • Cover the mixture with a wet cloth and keep aside.
  • Now heat the oil in a pan for deep frying.
  • With the mixture make small balls and press them with your palm into flat and deep fry in oil on medium flame until both sides turn into golden colour.
  • Transfer them on to a kitchen towel to absorb excess oil.
  • Repeat the process with the remaining mixture.
  • Enjoy this tasty and crispy Pukhlein.
