    2 cups
  • Raw split pigeon peas (hare tuvar ke dane) coarsely ground
    1 cup
  • Ghee
    1 tablespo to deep fry
  • Khoya/mawa
    2 tablespoons

Step 1

To make anarsa atta, soak 3 cups thick grained rice in water for 3 days, draining the water every night and replacing it with fresh water.

Step 2

After 3 days drain the water, spread the rice on a cotton cloth but not in the sun. When completely dry, grind to a fine powder.

Step 3

Add 2 cups powdered sugar to 3 cups rice powder and mix well. Take around 2 cups of anarsa atta in a bowl, add lukewarm water little by little and mix to make a soft dough. Divide into 6-8 equal portions and roll into balls.

Step 4

To make the stuffing, grind fresh split pigeon peas to form a coarse paste. Heat 1 tbsp ghee in a non stick pan and lightly saute the ground peas. Add khoya, powdered sugar, green cardamom powder and nutmeg powder and mix well. Let it cool completely.

Step 5

Spread one dough ball on your palm, place a little stuffing in the centre, gather the ends of the dough and press to seal. Heat sufficient ghee in a kadai on low heat.

Step 6

Gently slide in the stuffed anarsa and deep fry, without stirring till golden and crisp. Drain on absorbent paper.

Step 7

Sprinkle some poppy seeds on the anarsa when it is still hot. Garnish with a cherry and serve.
