Serves 8

  • FOR THE PURI DOUGH ; All purpose flour 3 cups

  • Milk 1 cups

  • Water 1/2 cups

  • FOR THE HALWA ; Bengal gram or chana dal 2 cups

  • Ghee 1/2 cups

  • Sugar 1 cups

  • Cardamom Powder 1 tsp

  • Mixed nuts slivered 1/2 cups

  • Milk 2 cups


  • 01

    Make a smooth dough with the ingredients listed under it.

  • 02

    Keep it covered for about 20 minutes.

  • 03

    Soak the dal for about 4 to 5 hours or overnight.

  • 04

    Pressure cook the dal with 2 cups of milk.

  • 05

    Open the lid after the pressure settles down.

  • 06

    On a medium high heat, keep cooking it by adding the sugar and the cardamom powder.

  • 07

    Add the ghee and the nuts too after 10 minutes.

  • 08

    When the ghee starts leaving the sides of the pan, switch off the flame. It takes about 30 minutes or little more.

  • 09

    Now divide the dough into lemon sized balls and roll each into a circular disc.

  • 10

    Place a tablespoon of this halwa onto the disc and cover it up by making it into a half moon shape. Press the edges firmly with the fingers and pinch it down to seal properly. They look just like calzones.

  • 11

    Deep fry them in hot oil on medium flame turning them every now and then for even cooking. Fry them until nice and golden.

  • 12

    Frying these takes another half an hour.

  • 13

    Serve them with some rice kheer to your family and friends.
