Parsi Peni - A simply tempting sweet ! & Awards




Parsi Peni1


Are you bored with cakes and cookies!!! if so just go a little desi ;)
Parsi peni is a simple fried sweet that would tempt your tongue. Its all about putting your favortite ingredients together in a different form. ;) Enjoy making :)


Ingredients:

All purpose flour(Maida) - Required quantity to make the dough

Powdered sugar - 1 1/2 cup

Milk - 1 cup

Ghee - 1 cup

Oil - For deep frying


Method:


Beat ghee and 3/4 cup of powdered sugar together in a bowl. Now pour in milk and mix well.

Once done add all purpose flour little by little and mix well until the contents roll into a ball(Poori dough consistency).
Approximately 1/2 kg of all purpose flour would be requited for making it.

Make marble sized balls and press them in a poori press or just by pressing them in between two plastic sheets. Now in a pan of oil, deep fry the flattened dough till it puffs up like poori. Do not over roast, it just has to change to light golden brown. Never mind if it really does not puff up much, it would still be tasty. Remove the pooris from the oil and sprinkle the remaining 3/4 cup of powdered sugar on the pooris.


This quantity would make around 60 Parsipeni.

Yummy Parsi peni is ready to eat.. Absolutely drool worthy simple dish and I am sure you would agree with me. :)


Note:
Sprinkle the powdered sugar on the pooris right after they are removed from oil, otherwise it would not stick to it.

Hi
Very tasty peni!
Congratulations for award, you really deserve it.. I wish you many more!!!

Rohini said...

Hearty Congrats for winning the event dear!! And congrats for the awards too!!
Is it something we call Padhirpeni? or is the name been altered to suit our tongue?? ;)
Anyways, it is absolutely delectable!!

Nithya said...

Rohini I guess this is a little different from Padhir peni. They use rice flour to coat padhir peni and they eat it with milk I guess. I am really not so sure abt it. But pretty sure that its different from this..
