Recipe Type Veg.
  • 200 gms Coconut (grated)
  • 450 gms Khoya
  • 2-1/2 cup Sugar/Date Palm Jaggery
  • 150 gms Flour
  • 5-6 cup Water
  • 40 gms Ghee
  • 1/8 tsp Sodium Bicarbonate
How to make Gokul Pithe:
  • First make sugar syrup by heating 2 cups sugar with 4 cups of water in a heavy bottomed vessel. Simmer until syrup gets a medium thick consistency. Remove from the flame and allow it to cool.
  • To prepare filling, fry the coconut, khoya and 2 tbsp of sugar together in a pan over medium flame. Stir continuously to avoid the filling getting stuck at the bottom of the pan. Turn off the flame.
  • To make cakes, divide the coconut-khoya mixture into equal portions. Roll them into balls and flatten between the palms to form the cakes. Powder palms with flour for ease in forming the cakes.
  • Now make the batter by mixing flour, remaining water, sodium bi carbonate and a little ghee together.
  • Heat ghee in a pan and coat coconut-milk cakes in the prepared batter.
  • Deep fry until a rich golden brown color. Remove cakes from the pan with slotted spoon.
  • Drain excess oil on paper and while still hot, immerse the cakes in the sugar syrup.
