How to make Gangaur Fal?
One of our talented Sakhi, Chandra Ji Lakhani, showcasing the procedure of making 'fal' for Gangaur Pooja.
Wheat flour ( atta) : 1 cup
Oil/melted ghee : 1 Tbsp
Sugar : ¼ cup
Water : ¼ cup
Oil to fry
Mix sugar + water in a pot and boil till sugar to dissolve. Mix flour + oil and rub together. Mix the sugar water to the flour mixture as needed and knead to form the dough. The dough has to be firm, but not too firm; soft, but not too soft, and not overworked. Keep dough aside, covered, for 20 minutes.
Frying on high heat will make the “fal” soft the next day, frying on low heat will make them hard enough to break your teeth. So, fry on medium.
Use these “fal” for Gangaur festival the next day.
