Pathir Pheni for My Sister and BIL

My sister and BIL are celebrating their wedding anniversary today. Just to celebrate this special day, I've posted my sister's favourite "Badam Poori" recipe (This is how she calls this dish). Our hearty wishes to you both...Enjoy your day with Pathir Pheni:-)

Ingredients :

1. All Purpose Flour (Maida) - 1 Cup
2. Sooji - 1/4 Cup
3. Baking Powder - 1/4 tsp
4. Salt - Less than 1/4 tsp
5. Sugar - 1 tsp
6. Butter - 1/2 tsp (Softened)
7. Rice Flour - 1 tbs
8. Ghee - 1/2 tbs (melted)
9. Mixed nuts - 1/4 Cup (Coarsely Powdered)
10. Powdered Sugar or sugar syrup
11. Oil - For Frying
12. Badam Milk (Chilled)

Procedure :

1. Mix Maida, sooji, baking powder, salt, sugar and butter.
2. Knead well and make a soft dough.Cover and Keep aside for 15 minutes.
3. Now, mix rice flour and ghee and make a paste.Keep aside.
4. After, 15 minutes divide dough in to small portions and make balls out of the dough.
5. Roll the dough balls in to chapatis.
6. Then, apply rice flour and ghee paste over a chapati. Place another chapati over it and again apply rice flour and ghee paste over it. Repeat the same procedure till you layered about 6 chapatis.
7. Roll the layered chapatis.
8. Cut them in equal size. You can vey well see the concentric circles in them.
9. Gently roll them like poori.
10. Heat oil and fry pooris.
11. Drain excess oil on a kitchen tissue.

12. Dust the pooris with powdered sugar or dip in sugar syrup.
13. Garnish with coarsely powdered nuts.
12. Serve with chilled badam milk.

Note :

You can prepare your own badam mix at home or store bought mix can also be used to prepare the milk. For home made mix, take equal quantities of almond and powdered sugar. Grind dry roasted almond and cardamom together till smooth. Mix powdered sugar and almond-cardamom mixture together. Store in air tight container for future use.
