My grandmother taught me this recipe which is made during Deepavali. It is a simple and easy to prepare recipe.

What you need

Maida: 1 cup

Milk: 3 cups

Sugar: 1 cup

Cashewnuts: 10

Cardamom: a few

Saffron: a pinch

Oil: a little

Salt: a pinch

Cooking instructions

Make dough with the maida and a pinch of salt and keep aside for 30 minutes.

Roll out into thin pooris and deep fry in oil.

Grind cashewnuts and cardamom to a coarse powder.

Boil milk till it reduces to half. Add sugar, saffron, the cashew-cardamom mixture and continue to boil on a low flame.

Remove milk from flame, add the pooris one by one and let soak.

Remove the polis from the milk and store separately as soaked polis tend to stick.

Serve hot or chilled.
