Makhmal Puri

Makhman puri is Prabha attewaree’s specialty. Every raksha bandhan especially, she’ll make yummy makhmal puris and get them home, tie a rakhi to my daddy and then we all feast on the yummy sweet that literally melts in our mouths!

2 cups maida , 2 Tea spoons veg oil, pinch of salt  

For the stuffing:

1 cup powdered sugar, 1/2 teaspoon cardamom powder, 1 table spoon roasted and powdered  khas khas(poppy seeds), 2 table spoons roasted and coarsely powdered grated dry coconut, 1/2cup powdered roasted gram(optional) 

Vegetable oil to fry. 


  • Prepare a hard dough by mixing maida, oiland salt by mixing with just sufficient  quantity of water and kneading well.
  • Keep it covered for 1hour.
  • Mix all the ingredients listed under stuffing.  
  • Keep oil for heating in a flat kadai. 
  • Make balls of the dough of equal size, roughly with 2″ diameter.
