A delicious Indian sweet made with whole wheat flour, ghee and dry fruits. Perfect when you are fasting or otherwise.
Heat a kadhai or pan. Put 1.5 cup whole wheat flour in it. Roast on low flame for 12-15 minutes till it turns golden brown and gives off a lovely aroma.
Now add 6 tbsp. ghee to this and mix well with the roasted flour. Roast for about 5 more minutes.
Add cashews and roasted almonds to this mix and continue to stir. Add raisins too if using. Cook on low flame for about 5 minutes more till it looks like sand and there is no raw smell.
Take it off the heat and let it cool. When almost at room temperature, add powdered sugar in batches and mix well.
Vary the quantity of sugar as per your taste. I don't like my sweets very sweet.
Garnish with some sugar batashe and serve. Your lovely panjiri is ready to consume.
Don't ever roast on a high or medium flame. It will unevenly cook the atta and ruin its taste.
You can store panjiri at room temperature for upto two weeks. It does not spoil at all.
You can use any mix of dry fruits that you like. Make sure nothing is moist.
Vary the quantity of sugar used as per taste.
Bura or khand which are local sugar can also be used.
