Method

  • Mix rawa, maida and baking powder in a bowl.

  • Cover it and keep it for 6 to 8 hours.
  • After 8 hours, add lightly beaten eggs, sugar, elaichi powder, crumbled khoya, almonds and enough milk to make fairly thick batter.

  • Pour one large spoon of batter on it. Fry it until the batter turns golden brown on one side. Then turn it on the other side. Let the other side also turn golden brown.
