This month's Indian Cooking Challenge recipe, given by this Event hoster Srivalli of Cooking4 All Seasons, is Thekua, a Pooja sweet or Prasadham of Bihar, deep-fried aromatic Cookies or Fried Bihari Biscuits in short.

This excellent teatime snack needs less ingredients and time.U can try baking this cookies instead of deep-frying - for a healthier option. This needs 15 mins cooking time, serves 4 nos and can do 15+ Cookies.  Enjoy ur snack-time with Thekua!. BonAppetit!. Yummy!!!.

Lovely cookies and nice step by step pictures.

I have not used a milk boiler and my assumption is it would work too for melting chocolate since we are doing the same thing with 2 vessels.
