TOI EP:16 - How to Make Deep Fried Cookies (Tekua) Recipe
1 day ago
Thekua recipe is an easy, flaky tea-time sweet snack recipe with no preservative, yet can be stored and consumed for 15-20 days.
Yes, this recipe has a very typical name but trust me it has a very opposite taste. Thekua is very popular in North and East India and it has been served as a sweet snack for centuries in some of these places. In India this recipe is considered a very important part during some festivals, especially in “Chhath Puja”, when this snack is a must have recipe.
In fact this is what is offered to the God Sun as a Prasad. Chhath Puja is a four daylong celebration festival which includes several traditional rituals like holy bathing, fasting and standing for hours in water making offerings to the Sun God. Chhath Puja is incomplete without this recipe. This recipe has so many other names like some people call it Khajoor and some Thikari and so on….
Ohhhh… I am forgetting something here, do you remember my last post where I explained about the two snacks item I prepared for my brother. Yep!!! you are right the first one was nimki, the recipe I have shared in my last post and the second one is Thekua.
Trust me I never imagined I could ever make this recipe because of the authenticity it required. But as my hubby says, after all I am my Mom’s daughter so the art of making good food has to be an inherent part of me as well..
And it is so true that “experience makes a man perfect”. In fact it made a woman perfect in my case. This was the second time I was making Thekua (the first time was when I made it for my brother and the 2nd time when I made this video). And this time it turned out to be even better than the last one.
The texture was just right and so were the quantity of the ingredients as well. I was a little worried about the amount of sugar and the sweetness, but my mom’s advise that had come out of years of experience couldn’t have gone wrong.
In fact you can even bake it to give it a little healthier touch though I don’t really call anything made out of “all purpose flour”, very healthy. This is a nice tiffin snacks for your little ones and I am sure they will love it just as my little one likes it.
