Tikri / Khajur Recipe:
For Tikri / Khajur Dough:
- Take 500 gms maida ( all purpose flour) and add 3/4 cup ghee in it to make it khasta. Rub the mixture with the help of your fingers with both the hands for 5-10 minutes.
- You can add more ghee if required to make it more khasta. Instead of ghee you can also use oil.
- Add 250 gms sugar, cardamon powder and mix.
- Now slowly add little water and mix. Be careful while adding water as we want stiff dough not soft dough for tikri which is also called as khajur.
- Once tikri / khajur dough is ready take small portion of dough and make round balls with help of your fingers and palm.
- Place the tikri ball on chapati roller or back of plate and press and make round discs as shown in picture with help of your fingers and palm.
- Repeat the process for all tikri / khajur balls.
For Frying tikries / khajur:
