Living in Mumbai I miss out on the cold winter morning’s and evening’s I witnessed for so long in North India😰😰😰. Today is comparatively cold in Mumbai also. This made way to make our second batch of pinni’s of this season.😍😍😍😍
These are delicious mouthfull. Yummy and healthy at the same time. Though it’s loaded with ghee and dryfruits but isn’t that the point of making them😇😇😅😅. We used to have it in morning with a glass of milk as children. And the legacy continues…..my 1 year old loves it too….😁😁😁
It’s a long process yet a very delicious one at the end. I think I myself had 3 pinni’s today itself which means I have to resist myself for another two days not to have them 😤😤😤.
1kg wheat flour
1/2 kg sugar grinded finely
2 cups of mixed nuts (almonds, cashews, raisins)
250gms fresh ghee
1/2kg khoya(roasted on stove till cooked and browned)
2tbsp goond (optional)
In a large heavy bottom kadai heat half of the ghee and fry goond (if using) and keep aside.
Add in the rest of the ghee and wheat flour and mix till the wheat flour is nicely incorporated and begins to brown.
At this point be very careful not to burn the flour.
Once done add khoya. Mix until combined. Add nuts. Bhuno again. At last when ready add sugar. It can be adjusted as per taste. Now bhuno for few more min until sugar is well combined.
When it’s cooled enough to be handled start making ladoos. Don’t forget to gobble some up too😀😀😲.
