Panjiri – पंजीरी; use to make in winters in Punjabi families in North India. Traditional Indian dry sweet is used to making from thousands of years. Healthy, full for nutrition. I just love its crispy taste.

Panjiri is made up by wheat flour roasted in ghee with dry fruits and later adding sugar. You can avoid dry fruits or change them as per your taste, also some people use to add semolina (सूजी); if you want to add semolina (सूजी) then make 2:1 ratio of wheat flour and semolina (सूजी) respectably. Semolina gives more crispy taste. This is my friend’s recipe.
