Golap Pitha (গোলাপ পিঠা)

  1. Milk- 1 cup
  2. All purpose Flour - 1 cup
  3. Salt- 1/2 ts
  4. Oil/ghee- 1 Tbs
  5. Sugar- 1 cup
  6. Water - 1/2 cup
  7. Oil - for deep fry
Procedure :
  1. Take milk in a pan, add salt and make it boil in a medium heat. When milk start to boil, add the flour in it and stir it to mix flour with milk. Mix the dough for about 2-3 minutes in the heat.
  2. Now take the dough in a plate and keep it to cool little bit so that you can handle it with hand. Take the oil/ ghee in your hand and start to mix the dough nicely. Mix it for about 6-7 minutes to form a nice dough. Then divide the dough to 7-8 small balls.
  3. Take one small ball on your rolling board. Spread little bit dry flour on it and make a thin ruti.
  4. Take a 6-7 cm round cookie cutter or any round shape sharp edge glass or cup and cut some small round shape part from your large ruti.
  5. Put 3 small ruti on top of one another, take small part from the excess of ruti to put in the center of your flower. Then make your flower following the procedure described in the video.
  6. If you can not see the video in the YouTube, please click here to see in the vimeo.com.
  7. Pour the water in a saucepan, add the sugar in it and make it a boil. Then keep it in a low heat to simmer.
  8. Now heat the oil in a medium heat. When oil is heated enough put the flowers in the oil and fried the both side till a nice golden brown color comes out. (remember do not hurry during frying otherwise your pitha will remain uncooked).
  9. Take out the pitha on a paper towel to soak the excess oil. Then put them in the sugar syrup which is simmering in the low heat. Flip your pitha in the syrup for couple of time to coat it with sugar syrup. Then take them out on a plate.
  10. Make rest of the pitha following the same process.
  11. Keep your pitha to cool down to room temperature. Then surprise everyone by serving this nice Golap Pitha.

  1. গোলাপ পিঠা চমৎকার একটি পিঠা। দেখতে খুব সুন্দর তাই অতিথি আপ্যায়নে আমার খুবই প্রিয় একটি আইটেম এটি। সুন্দর একটি রেসিপির জন্য ধন্যবাদ। এই সাইটে অনেক মজার রেসিপি রয়েছে। একটা ছোট পরামর্শ, সাইটে রেসিপির ছবিগুলো বড় হলে আরো ভাল দেখাতো আর সাইটটা আরো আকর্ষনীয় যদি করা যেত।

    ধন্যবাদ

    1. Hi,
      We are not sure why your pitha is breaking. Here are some suggestions:
      1.Do not let dough to dry. You may use a wet towel to cover it.
      2.Make a paste with flour and little bit water and use it to stick the flower.
      3.Also cover the flowers with wet cloth before frying them.
      Hope these tips will help you.
      Thank you for your comment.

    1. Hi,
      I think the pitha will become soft and the taste will not be the same as fresh one. You can make it the day before the party.
      Thanks.
