Cooking Time

Preparation Time :20 Min

Cook Time : 20 Min

Total Time : 40 Min


Serves : 4
  • 1 nos coconut, grated

  • 3/4 cups all purpose flour (maida)

  • 3 tbsp sooji

  • 3-4 tbsp sugar

  • 3 cups oil (or as required for deep drying)


  • Mix coconut, maida, sooji and sugar together in a mixing bowl and knead the mixture properly to make a soft dough. Don’t add extra water. Grated coconut contains enough moisture and that should serve the purpose.
  • To make pitha, make small balls from the dough and give them oblong shape by using your palm.
  • Heat required oil in a pan and deep fry the pithas until they turn golden brown.
  • Spread paper in a plate and remove the fried pithas to it. The paper will soak the excess oil.
  • Your Narkel-er Jaam Pitha is ready now.
