Its a basic recipe. You can make it with refined flour and sugar too. Measurements will be the same. Add tutti fruity, candied cherries or any dry fruits of your choice.
You can omit milk powder if you want. Use mashed cottage cheese or paneer or khoya/mawa or dried milk instead. In that case increase the amount of jaggery powder 1 to 2 spoon. If you don’t have jaggery powder you can use brown sugar or powdered sugar too.
If you don’t like kewra flavour you can use any other flavours like rose, vanilla or add 1/2 teaspoon cardamom or cinnamon powder. Choice is yours.
I have served it with chocolate sauce.
I am sending this post to our 99th #Foodiemonday bloghop #flowerrecipes theme. I have chosen kewra.
Kewra water is an extract distilled from the aromatic flower of the pandanus plants. Its mainly used in South Asian cuisine. This essence is a transparent liquid, similar to rose water. Kewra jal or water can be substitute with kewra essence which is more concentrated.
