Trivia Tadka

Khajur are crisp biscuit-like cookies that are children's delight. When they are shaped round like a biscuit, they are called thekua and when they are shaped oblong, they are called khajur.


  • Whole-wheat flour (gehun ka atta) (2 cups)
  • Sugar (1 cup)
  • Clarified butter (ghee) (1/2 cup)
  • Coconut (nariyal) (1/2 cup)
  • Cardamom powder (elaichi) (1 tsp)
  • Water (3/4 cup)
  • Oil (for deep frying)


  • In a large bowl or plate, add flour, sugar, coconut, cardamom powder and ghee.
  • Rub ghee into the flour till it resembles fine breadcrumbs.
  • Add water, 1/4 of a cup at a time, and knead it into a stiff dough.
  • Dive the dough into 5 portions and shape each portion into a long cylinder.
  • Cut each cylinder into four, one-inch pieces. Press down each piece to flatten it.
  • Heat oil in a kadhai and deep fry the khajur for 1–2 mins on each side until dark golden brown in colour.
  • Remove onto an absorbent paper to drain excess oil.
  • Store in airtight containers for up to 2 weeks.
