Rajgira puri

Rajgira ki Puri

Rajgira Puri, Amaranth Flour Puri

Raajgira puri, a simple vrat recipe in fasting days. The name suggests that this puri made by rajgira or amaranth flour.

Rajgira is used in fasting days. With this rajgira atta, you can make rajgira paratha or patties even we can add this flour into sabudana wada. This amarnath flour always work well as a binding agent. A small tip and idea, we can use this flour as thickening agent while making fruit custard in fasting days. It will give nice creamy custard, as we cannot eat cornflour in fasting.

Fasting recipe

I have used boiled potato to make rajgira ki poori. This work very well as a rajgira is gluten free. We need very less amount of water to make dough. Always make medium size puris and fried on medium flame, once oil heated properly so it can absorb more oil.

I have served these rajgira puris with coconut and peanut chutney.

Ganesha Special “Fried Modak”, How To Make Fried Modak Recipe

September started and Some more recipes are in pipeline starting with Ganapati Bappa Special, “Fried Modak”. I have already posted “Ukdiche Modak”

You will get Modak for bappa In every maharashtriyan family for Ganapati Festival. It can be in any like mawa modak, kaju modak, fried modak or steam modak.

This todays modak recipe is dip fry with sweet coconut and sugar inner filling with some dry fruits for extra rich flavors. Instead of sugar, you can use jaggery. This is more healthier option but I want to try traditional way to make fried modak so used sugar only. For outer layer, I used semolina and plain flour or maida. This plain flour gives nice crispy outer layer even whole wheat flour is also good alternative with semolina. This inner feeling can be used to make karanji which is one more sweet to make for Ganesha and Gauri festivals.
