How to Prepare
    • In a kadai, heat 1 cup of water and add jaggery into it. The jaggery needs to be melted in order to form a syrup.
    • Once the jaggery melts completely and starts to thicken a bit, turn off the gas flame and allow it to cool down.
    • Meanwhile take the wheat flour in a large mixing vessel or bowl.
    • Add 2 teaspoons of ghee into it. Make sure the ghee isn't in the solid form.
    • Mix the flour and ghee well so that both combine well.
    • When you mix the ghee in the flour try holding the flour in your fist to check if the flour stays.
    • Add 1 teaspoon of fennel seeds along with the cardamom powder.
    • Add half a cup of grated coconut into the flour and mix everything well to form a breadcrumb like consistency.
    • Now knead the flour into a firm dough by adding water in little quantities.
    • Make sure the dough isn't too soft or too hard. It should be flexible and firm.
    • Once the dough is formed, take small portions of dough and roll them into round balls.
    • Take the thekua shaper and smear some ghee over it.
    • Press the dough balls flat on the thekua shaper and keep the pressed thekua aside.
    • Repeat the same process with the rest of the dough balls.
    • Once you have shaped all the thekuas, turn off the gas flame and heat 2 cups of ghee in a frying kadai.
    • Once the ghee gets heated on medium-high flame, deep fry the thekuas as per the capacity of the kadahi.
    • Repeat the process until all the thekuas are deep fried.
    • Serve thekuas to your guests with evening tea.
    • You can also store them for 3-4 weeks in a airtight jar.
  • Once the jaggery melts completely and starts to thicken a bit, turn off the gas flame and allow it to cool down.
