How To Make Quick Gur Anarsa:

Here, instead of soaking, drying and grinding rice, parul used rice flour and wheat flour to prepare the dough. You need to mix wheat flour, rice flour with ghee and add it to jaggery syrup. Again, mix everything together to prepare soft dough. Make small roundels out of the dough and coat it with white til (sesame seeds). All you need to do now is, deep fry the anarsa and serve.
