Gulpavate (wheat tambittu)


1 cup wheat flour
3/4 cup powdered/grated jaggery
1/4 cup kobri(dry coconut)
3-4 tbsp ghee
cardamom powder
cashews, raisins


Fry cashews and raisins and keep aside. Roast the wheat flour in a little ghee until the raw smell disappears and it turns to a golden brown. Keep aside. In a pan, melt the jaggery with little water and make a thin consistency sugar syrup. This takes about 4 mins. Switch off the heat. Add the wheat flour, cashews, raisins, ghee, coconut and cardamom powder and mix well. Allow to cool a bit, and then shape into balls. Serve warm!

Note: Roast the flour on medium heat and keep stirring so it doesnt burn. Dont let the sugar syrup get too thick or else the balls will get hard. Switch off the heat once you add the flour. It tastes great when served warm!
