1 pound rice flour
1 pound wheat semolina
½ pound sugar molasses (or jaggery, if you can find it)
Vegetable oil for frying


  1. Bring 2 ½ cups of water to a boil. Add molasses or jaggery and stir until it melts and the liquid becomes brownish.
  2. Add rice flour and mix well. Add semolina and continue mixing. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
  3. When mixture is cool enough to handle comfortably, remove a small portion of the dough (about the size of a lemon). Place it on a clean surface and pat on it until it becomes a circle of about 3 inches diameter.
  4. Heat the oil in a deep pan. Transfer the Ghari (dough) to the hot oil and fry on both sides over medium heat until light brown.
  5. Remove the fried Ghari on to a thick paper towel placed on serving dish, to blot excess oil.
