Gokul Pithe


• 200 gms Coconut (grated)
• 450 gms Khoya
• 2-1/2 cup Sugar/Date Palm Jaggery
• 150 gms Flour
• 5-6 cup Water
• 40 gms Ghee
• 1/8 tsp Sodium Bicarbonate
How to make Gokul Pithe:
First make sugar syrup by heating 2 cups sugar with 4 cups of water in a heavy bottomed vessel. Simmer until syrup gets a medium thick consistency. Remove from the flame and allow it to cool.
To prepare filling, fry the coconut, khoya and 2 tbsp of sugar together in a pan over medium flame. Stir continuously to avoid the filling getting stuck at the bottom of the pan. Turn off the flame.
To make cakes, divide the coconut-khoya mixture into equal portions. Roll them into balls and flatten between the palms to form the cakes. Powder palms with flour for ease in forming the cakes.
Now make the batter by mixing flour, remaining water, sodium bi carbonate and a little ghee together.
Heat ghee in a pan and coat coconut-milk cakes in the prepared batter.
Deep fry until a rich golden brown color. Remove cakes from the pan with slotted spoon.
Drain excess oil on paper and while still hot, immerse the cakes in the sugar syrup.
