How to make Dryfruit Panjiri
- Step 1. Roast almonds and cashews for a minute. For cooking this Panjiri recipe, take a flat-bottomed frying pan and start heating some ghee in it. Once the ghee is heated, add cashews and almonds to it. Roast them both for at least a minute and then transfer the roasted almond and cashews to a bowl and keep them aside.
Step 2 Shallow fry the lotus seeds for 5 minutes until crispy
Now, take the same pan and again add a tablespoon of ghee in it. Put in the lotus seeds and shallow fry them over a medium to light flame for a good 5 to 6 minutes until they turn crispy. After the lotus seeds are done frying, transfer them to the same bowl where sautéed dry fruits were kept (Step 1). Using a grinder jar, coarsely grind almonds, cashews and lotus seeds together.
Step 3. Roast the wheat flour and add all other ingredients to it.
Next, put a kadai and preheat 1 cup of ghee in it. Add wheat flour and roast it for 6 to 7 minutes or until you observe a golden coloured flour. To it, add crushed pistachio, cardamom powder, water melon seeds and melon seeds. Roast for another 5 minutes or so. Then add the mixture of ground almond, cashew and lotus seeds. While stirring frequently, roast the entire amalgamation for a good 6 to 7 minutes. Remove from heat and mix sugar to the result. Let the mixture cool down and your Panjiri is all set to be enjoyed.
