One of the sweets I made for Navarathiri was Pathir Peni. I thought it would be difficult but it definitely was not so though it took me some time to prepare.
Maida - 3/4 cup
Rava - 1/4 cup
Powdered Sugar - 1 cup
Baking soda - 1 pinch
Cardamom Powder - 1 pinch
Oil for Frying
Preparing the Dough
Powder Rava finely. Add Maida, powdered sugar, baking soda, cardamom powder to it. (The amount of Rava and Maida can be exchanged). Add water and make a dough out of it.
Preparing the Chappathi's / Poori's
Make small balls out of the dough. Roll the balls into flat thin round shapes using a chapatti roller. Spread ghee over the chapatti. (You can make a paste out of rice flour and ghee and then spread it). Place another chapatti over it. Then spread ghee on the top of second chapatti. Place a third chapatti on top of the
second to make a thick chapatti. Now roll this chapatti from the edge to form a
cylindrical shape. Cut this cylinder into bits and make chapatti once again from
these bits. Deep fry them in oil.
Last Few Steps
Sprinkle Powdered Sugar over the fried chapatti or poori (whatever you may want to call it).
Pathir Peni is ready and Yummy!!!
