KHEERA GAJA..(DEEP FRIED MILK PASTRY WITH SAFFRONY MILKY SAUCE)


     
"KHEERA GAJA" A deep fried sweet preparation, crunchy on the outside, moist and flaky inside..        
                                                     
Ingredients :-
Maida (All Purpose Flour) - 2 cups
Vegetable Oil / Ghee / Butter - 2-3 tsp
Soda Bicarbonate - 1/2 tsp
Salt a Pinch
Powdered / Caster Sugar - 1/2 cup
Saunf (Fennel seeds) - 1/2 tsp
Milk - 1/2 cup or as required to knead the dough
Oil for deep frying
Cardamom powder a pinch

Method :-
In a big bowl mix all the ingredients Maida, Salt, Sugar, Soda bicarbonate, Saunf, Oil / Ghee together very well. Add luke warm milk slowly to it and knead a semi tight dough (neither very tight nor soft). Keep aside for 10 minutes.   

Make small small equal size balls from the dough and roll it long oval shape with your palm.

Heat oil in a wide frying pan. Deep fry it in low medium flame till it comes to golden in colour. Drain out the dumplings from the oil and soak in absorbent paper.

Serve the Kheera Gaja by sprinkling little caster sugar or you can deep it in thick sauce of milk.

Saffrony Milky Sauce :- Boil 2 cups of milk. Add sugar to your taste and boil it in medium flame. Add 1 tsp maida+water solution to the milk. Stir it continuously.When it start to thickens add a few saffron strands and vanilla essence  and boil for more 2 minutes. Switch off the flame and cool it at room temperature. You can also keep it in fridge and serve chilled. I've just put it in fridge for 1 hours and then serve with crispy Kheera Gaja garnish with chocolate rice grains.

Enjoy it !!! Happy Cooking... :) :) :)
