Ingredients Of Dhaka Delight

  • 1-liter milk
  • 1 pinch citric acid (tatrey)
  • 2 tbsp semolina
  • 1 cup of coconut powder
  • 250 gm sugar
  • 2 tbsp milk powder
  • 1 tbsp screw pine (kewra)
  • Green and red food color a few drops
  • Oil for frying
  • 1-meter muslin cloth (malmal ka kapra)
  • Grated coconut for garnishing

Method Of Dhaka Delight

  • Heat milk, add citric acid in it to curdle it. Put the curdled milk in a muslin cloth and let it hand so that excess water drains away.
  • When all the water has drained, place the milk blob on a cutting board. Add semolina, milk powder, and screw-pine to it and mix well with hands.
  • Separate this mixture into two parts. Add red food color in one part and green in the other. Mix each part separately, till the colors get evenly distributed.
  • Heat oil in a wok, make small rounds from both the mixtures, and fry them till they turn golden.
  • Make sugar syrup. Immerse these rounds in the syrup for 2 minutes.
  • Take them out and roll them in grated coconut. Keep them in a serving dish and serve.
