Panjiri: A healthy snack for your child

Panjiri is not a common snack that Malayalis binge on. But nevertheless, it is one of the best healthy snacks you can make for your child and that too in no time. Team up Panjiri with a glass of milk, and your child's breakfast is done.


1/2 cup ghee

1/4 cup badam

50gm raisins

10 to 15 cashew nuts

2 tablespoons of ghee

1/2 cup rava

1 cup wheat flour

1/4 cup grated dry coconut

1/4 cup powdered sugar

2 tablespoons sunflower seeds


Pour 1/2 cup ghee in a pan and roast badam, raisins and cashew nuts. Remove the dry fruits.

Pour two tablespoons of ghee in the pan. Add rava and roast.

After two to three minutes, add wheat flour. Roast for four to five minutes.

Then add powdered sugar to this, followed by grated coconut. Roast till the wheat flour turns a light shade of brown.

As the colour changes, add the sunflower seeds and the roasted dry fruits.

Once it cools down, transfer Panjiri into air-tight containers.


You can add as much dry fruits you want. You can substitute sugar with powdered jaggery.
