Ingredients

Instructions

  • In a pan add the water and add the sesame seeds and sugar. Stir and bring it to boil until the sugar is melted.
  • Let the water cool down. In a mixing bowl add the plain and wheat flour.
  • To that add the clarified butter, make sure the ghee is melted and with your hands mix it into a bread crumbs texture.
  • Take the cooled water mixture and add a little at a time.  The dough needs to be a little harder than the chapatti dough. If you require more water then you can use warm tap water.
  • Smooth the dough with a little oil in your hand so that the dough does not get dry.
  • Divide the dough into small balls to make the Kharkharia.
  • Roll each ball into thin puris, some people like it thick, but the thin ones are crispier.
  • When they are all rolled out, arrange them on a clean cloth to dry for an hour before frying.
  • Heat the oil on a medium heat.
  • Stack the Kharkharia in a small pile and start frying.
  • Put 3 to 4 at a time and fry them until golden brown.
  • After they are all fried let them cool and store it in an air tight container ready to eat.
