· 3/4 teaspoon spice cardamom
· 333 grams of wheat flour
· 3/4 cup and 1 and 1/4 tablespoon almonds
· 1 and 1/4 cup lotus seed
· 1 and 2/3 tablespoon melon seeds
· 1 cup and 2 and 1/4 tablespoon pistachios
Step 1- Roast nuts, almonds and cashews for a minute
Firstly, for making this Panjiri recipe you need some ghee in a flat- bottomed frying pan. Heat the pan to a high-medium flame. Once, it’s heated add some nuts, cashews and almonds in it. Start roasting them for at least 1 to 2 minutes. After it, transfer the roasted dry fruits into a bowl and keep them aside.
Step 2- Deep-fry the lotus seeds for 5-6 minutes until crispy
Now, in the same fry pan add some more tablespoon of ghee in it. Also, add some lotus seeds and shallow fry them over low to medium flame. After 5 to 6 minutes when they are crispy enough, transfer them to the same bowl where roasted dry fruits were kept (in step 1). Then, using a grinder jar, coarsely grind lotus seeds, cashews and almonds together.
Step 3- Roast the wheat flour for 6 to 7 minutes and add all other ingredients to it
Now, next, you have to take a kadhai and preheat one cup of ghee in it. Add some wheat flour in it and roast it for 6 to 7 minutes until it turns golden brown. To it, add some cardamom powder, crushed pistachio, melon seeds and watermelon seeds. Roast them for around another 5 minutes or so. After it, add the entire mixture of cashew nuts, lotus seeds and almonds which you kept aside. Then stir the entire amalgamation in one direction and roast it properly for a good 6 to 7 minutes. At last, mix some sugar to the result and remove the heat.
Let the mixture cool down and your Panjiri is all ready to eat.
