Servings: 18-20 pieces


  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 ¼ cup gur or jaggery
  • 2 cups saunf or fennel seeds
  • 2 cups mustard oil, for deep frying
  • 1 cup water or as required


  • Warm the water in a heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium heat.
    Pour the hot water in a bowl and add in the jaggery to melt it.
    Add in all the other ingredients and mix well. Ensure the batter has a dripping consistency.
    Let the batter rest for an hour or till the flour has soaked in all the jaggery.
  • Heat the oil in a heavy-bottomed frying pan or kadhai over medium-low heat.
    Drop in the batter using a spoon.
    Deep fry over medium heat in batches and don't over-crowd the pan.
    When golden brown and well-cooked, drain excess oil and transfer onto a plate lined with tissue or a paper towel.
    Serve hot.
