Atte Ki Pinni Recipe

By Hemapriya Natesan @MyLittleMoppet

India has so many varied cuisines, and there are even special dishes prepared for each season. One such dish is Pinni, a traditional Punjabi sweet dish which is believed to be full of warmth and energy - perfect for cold, sluggish winters!

Pinnis are made with rice, wheat or urad dal, but the Pinni we're making today is with whole wheat flour and desi ghee! Yes, it's a dessert, but that doesn't mean it can't be wholesome!

2. In the same pan, add flour and keep stirring till it roasts to a brown color and gives off a nice aroma. Ensure that the flame is low to keep it from burning.

4. When the mixture cools down enough to handle with your bare hands, take small portions and roll them into balls. When done, keep the laddus aside to firm up nicely.
