Phova indori/hindori (beaten rice flakes sweet)
Today My Page Geethas Rasoi’s 2nd Birthday. My page mainly focuses on traditional and authentic Konkani dishes. On this very occation I want to present a dish called “Hindori/Indori” which my hubby’s Grand Mother used to prepare well. I learnt this from my Mother –in-law. This has two variants, one is Boiled Rice Kana Hindori and the other one is Beaten Rice Hindori. Here I prepared the Beaten Rice Hindori and I dedicate this very dish to my hubby’s Grand Mom and my page followers.
Thick brown beaten rice flakes 2 cup
Grated coconut 1 cup
Jagery ½ cup
Cardamom ½ tsp
Ghee 1 or 2 tsp
Dry roast beaten rice flakes/phovu/avil till nice aroma comes. Keep aside to cool.
Then make fine powder of it.
Heat ¼ cup water in kadai add jaggery boil it till it melts. Then add grated coconut and mix well. Cook till the jaggery syrup one or 2 thread consistency. (Take little syrup on finger tip when pressing it one or 2 threads should be seen.) Then add ½ tsp ghee mix well. Let it cool for 2 min.
Then add cardamom powder and fried beaten rice flakes powder mix well.
Grease small bowl with little ghee add this mix and tap well. Then unmold it on greased plate. (Do not allow this mix to cool, if it cools this mix will get hard u won’t be able prepare indori from it. Prepare it when mix is hot)
Let it cool for sometimes. Then store in air tight container.
