Meethay Ghoday ( For ICC )

This is the first time that I am participating in  Indian-Cooking-Challenge ( ICC)  started by Srivalli . This is a lovely challenge wherein members every month get to make  an authentic traditional Indian dish. 

I felt very lucky to participate in this event not only because since long I wanted to be member of this lovely group but also that this month the recipe we had to make was from Hyderabad which is known as the food lover's paradise. More over the recipe - we had to make this month was called Meethay Ghoday . It was suggested by Mirielle  and she has shared the recipe posted by Mona of zaiqa .

It seems that her recipe is the only recipe on the net for this sweet dish so you can imagine the rareness of this dish.

I too tried searching the net for more information on this sweet and it seems that this is truely a very very traditional dish.Naturally  I had never ever heard this name in my life and was very very eager to try it out .

The dish is very simple and the main interesting part is making ghoday ( flowers ) which is little time consuming but was fun to make. The dish turned out to be amazingly delicious and was relished by every one in my family. 

Thanks Mirielle and Srivalli  for suggesting such unique and lovely dish .



Ingredients :

1 cup...................Maida
1 tbsp.................ghee
3/4 cup...............sugar
1 cup .................milk
1/2 cup...............water
1 tbsp.................raisins
1 tbsp................almonds
pinch of salt


Method :

Knead a firm dough with maida, salt , ghee and little water.

Cover it with dampen cloth and keep aside for half an hour.

Now make thin rotis out of this dough and cut squares.


Shape this square in flowers as shown in the picture.




Keep them aside for half an hour and deep fry them in oil till golden in colour.

Now in a pan boil water and milk and add sugar.

When the milk boils add the fried ghodays ( flowers) and cook for 10 to 15 minutes .

Let the mixture thicken and coats the flower.

The flowers too will beocme soft .

Remove from the gas and take it in a bowl.

Sprinkle raisins and almond pieces fried in ghee over it and serve at room temperature.

Even chilled ghodays taste good.
