Ingredients for Kasar recipe
- 3/4 cup maida
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 2 teaspoon oil + for frying (clarified butter)
- 3 tablespoon milk to make the batter
Directions for Kasar recipe
Step 1: Firstly, take the maida (flour) in a dry bowl. Add sugar to it and mix very well with your hand.
Step 2: In another dry bowl, take oil and add maida mixture beating very well with a hand until it becomes a fine crumb. Then add milk and beat once again for 1-2 minutes until it forms a fine mixture.
Step 3: Take the 2 cups of water in a microwave-safe plate or mug. Stir with a hand until all the water is mixed properly to make the batter.
Step 4: Take a deep pan and add 3/4 cup of water to it. Bring it to a boil and then lower the flame. Now, add the maida mixture to this bowl. Mix very gently with your hand until all the water is absorbed in the batter. Now, pour this batter into the pan along with 2 teaspoons of oil evenly spread on top of it. Make sure that you do not pour all the batter in one go else it will get burnt at high flame later on.
Step 5: When the batter is cooked well, turn off the flame. Now make sure that the pan is very hot and start adding oil from the centre of the pan to avoid making crispy Kasar outside.
Step 6: Wait for 2 minutes and then flip the Kasar over. Overflowing from the bottom will be fried now by lowering the flame. Fry until it becomes golden brown.
Step 7: Take it out of the pan after 10 minutes and let it cool for 5 minutes before you serve it on a plate or bowl.
- Ensure to use a pan which is wide enough to make Kasar because it gets spread while you add the oil and if it is too small then making crispy Kasar will be difficult.
- Use a microwave-safe bowl/dish while cooking to avoid making the maida mixture overly thick. Then it will be very hard to cook under high flame.
- If you use more maida, then your Kasar will be less crispy and if you add more water, then it will be soft.
