How to make Phara

  1. Knead a dough of rice flour, maida, ghee, salt and sugar with water. Keep this aside for an hour.
  2. Grind a coarse paste of soaked chana dal, cumin, ginger-garlic paste, cardamom, green chillies to form a thick paste. Then mix the salt, hing and chopped coriander to it.
  3. Make balls of the dough and roll like roti shapes but a little thicker. Cut bangle sized circles with the help of small katoris. Put a dal paste in a circle and fold it like a semi circle but don't lock edges and keep it a little opened. Now the pharas are ready to be steamed.
  4. Boil water in a momo maker, put oil in the vessel to avoid stickiness. Keep all the pharas to steam or in parts as convenient to you. Steam till it's cooked properly. Take it out once it's cooled down.
  5. Serve with chapati and dhaniya ki chutney.

My Tip:

It can be served for lunch or dinner with kheer and sorso bata sabji.
