Upwasachya wadya/sweet tikkis

वरीच्या  तांदळाची   खानतोळी . 
My aajji used to make this tasty sweet dish out of normal rice semolina. As it was a fasting day(Angaraki chaturthi) today, I made it out of waricha tandul/bhagar. My daughter could not resist eating a piece before I could capture a snap.
Ingredients
1/2 cup bhagar/wari tandul/samo seeds
2 tsp ghee
1 cup water
1/4-1/2 cup jaggery-(as required )
1/2 tsp cardamom powder(optional)
salt to taste

Garnishing
freshly grated coconut
sajook toop

Method
  • Mix water and jaggery in a pan and bring it to boil.
  • Roast bhagar using ghee till it changes its color to light brown.
  • Strain the water jaggery mixture with cardamom powder and add it to the roasted bhagar. Stir well. Cover with lid.
  • Once the water gets absorbed and bhagar/waricha tandul gets fluffy, sprinkle a pinch of salt over it.
  • Mix well. Transfer the contents onto a greased plate and flatten(pat) the mixture with a  greased spatula or stainless steel katori(wati)
  • Mark the squares or diamonds with a knife. Let it cool. Cut the pieces.
  • Garnish with freshly grated coconut.
  • Serve with sajook toop.
