Thekua(khajur) Recipe

Most of you might not be knowing about these. I am sharing this traditional recipe today as many of my friends are crazy about thekua which is made as Prasad in one of the festivals celebrated in some parts of India. Though I am not sweet frenzy,I do not have an affinity towards Thekua.Many friends often ask about how it is made. My mother, grandmother and aunts make it occasionally for festivals,so I asked mom and my aunt to make few for this blog post and I am sharing the recipe here. To know more about Thekua click here.
