Delightful Tosha

( Click image for enlarged view )

Tosha is a Indian sweet which looks like gulab jamun but easier to make n very tasty too. It was really a lovely experience to make this wonderful sweet as I have childhood memories with toshas...my mom used to take me to temple and there we would buy tosha for prasad to offer to the lord...After 15 yrs I again got a chance to eat this. There was a event in Niveditas blog last week n she gave this recipe. I made this but due to some reason I did not post it. But thanks to Nivedita for the wonderful dessert.

Ingredients:
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup curd
For the Syrup
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
Cooking Procedure

Sieve the plain flour, salt n soda together. Now alternatively add a spoonful of oil and curd into the mixture and knead into a stiff dough. Make long thin rolls of 1.5 inch long. Deep fry these rolls in medium flame till honey brown

For the syrup,dissolve the sugar in water and boil the syrup till it to a thick consistency(two thread consistency). Put 4 to 5 toshas at a time into the vessel and stir the syrup. Remove the toshas n let it cool then store in airtight containers.

I am sending this tosha to
