I feel that the bongs have started to shy away from making pithes by themselves. Most people like buying these from shops. Kids can name only a few types, like the Gokul or Dudhpuli; IF they can name at all. The other, less popular ones have lost the race to the Pizza-s and Waffles. Here’s my humble try to introduce the reader to this amazing snack pithe. It is extremely fun to make and definitely, worth a try.2 cups of All purpose flour
⅓rd cup of Rice flour
Finely chopped ½ Carrot, ¼th Cabbage and/or ½ Tomato (Optional) - You can add Veggies according to the meat you have chosen.
Boiled Fish fillet or boiled Chicken mince ⅔rd cup (If using bony fish, boil and remove the pin bones)
1 Onion Finely chopped
Ginger Garlic paste ½ teaspoon
1 Finely chopped Green Chilli
Finely chopped Coriander
A pinch of Turmeric, Red Chilli and Cumin Powder
Salt to taste
