Ingredients for Gokul Pithe
200 grams of shredded coconut, 450 grams of khoya, 2 1/2 cups sugar/date palm jaggery, 150 grams of flour, 5 to 6 cups of water, 40 grams of ghee, and 1/8 teaspoon of baking soda.
Making of Gokul Pithe
To make sugar syrup, warm 4 cups of water and 2 cups of sugar. Permit cooling. Combine the coconut, khoya, and two tablespoons of sugar in a skillet and cook over medium heat. Continuously stir it. Form the mixture into balls, then flatten them between your palms to produce cakes. Combine the flour, remaining water, sodium bicarbonate, and ghee to make a batter. Pour the prepared batter over the coconut-milk cakes and heat the ghee. Deep fried the food in the sugar syrup until it is golden brown.
