Soan Papdi,is flaky Indian dessert available,all over the country.Though it is made and available in so many flavor but i personally prefer the regular one:)
this dish is made by my mom,i had done only one job,of clicking the pic and finishing it off:d
- 1 cup gram flour
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 2 cup sugar
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup ghee
- 1 tsp cardamom powder
- For Garnish:
- almonds and pistachios bits
In a large deep pan,heat ghee,on a medium flame toast flours until light brown and immediately transfer to another bowl to stop further heating.
In another deep pan,make sugar syrup by dissolving sugar in water until you get, 2 1/2 thread consistency.
Mix syrup in bowl with toasted flour,beat until it forms flakes,pour into a greased dish.(my mom use little big wooden fork ,which she specially brought for son papdi only)
Pat it down into 1 inch thickness,cool for at least half hour,mean while sprinkle chopped nuts and pat lightly,cut into pieces .
Store in airtight container or wrap individually into square pieces of thin plastic sheet,store in airtight container. Can be stored on self for 3 months,if remain;)
Sugar syrup will form a ball when dropped in cold water and when removed from the water can be easily flattened.Getting a correct syrup consistency is one of the most important step.
