Another Assamese delicacy. Doesn't require much time to make this snack. Never knew the name, I simply call it Narikol Pitha.
Ingredients : makes around 18 pithas
Half of a coconut, grated
Half cup sugar
1 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
little water or milk
For frying :
250 ml refine oil
Ingredients can be either mixed together without roasting the coconut. But I roast coconut and sugar first and let it cool. Then mix rest of the ingredients and knead to a fine dough. Make equal sized balls and flatten them.
Deep fry the pithas in medium heat. Can be stored for several days.
