Phenori / Sweet Satta

Phenori also called as Sweet Satta is a sweet dish prepared during special occasions specially during Diwali. My mom always used to  prepare it during Diwali and we kids used to finish all within a week. Personally, I am not a sweet lover but I can't stop eating Phenori. They are so yum, crispy and tasty.

The procedure to prepare it looks difficult but is really not so. Try preparing little at first so that you get an idea how it tastes or how much difficult it is.

  • Sugar Syrup can be used instead of Sugar powder.
  • Phenori should be fried properly else they will become soft.
  • You can sprinkle chiroti rawa  or rice flour to make them crispy.
  • Roll from center to the side. All the layers should be clearly visible. And avoid the centre from getting thin.
  • The number of layers can be 3,5 or 7.
  • The oil/ghee to fry should be medium hot and not too hot.

  • Take 5 poori's. Apply some ghee and sprinkle 1/2 tbsp of rice flour / chiroti rawa on first puri. Place the next one 1 inches from the edge of the first one, so as the second one will cover 2-3 part of the first poori. Repeat the same for all the other poori's.
  • Once all the 5 poori's are placed one over the other, gently but firmly roll the first poori's edge inwards and roll it until it reaches the last one.
