Faraali Pattice Recipe

by - June 07, 2015

I saw the Faraali Pattice recipe on Pinterest, and immediately thought of making it either on a Thursday (which is my dad's fasting day) or a Saturday (which is my mom's). Saturday came earlier, and I decided to make the recipe for supper time.

The best part about the Faraali Pattice Recipe is that we had all the ingredients at home and didn't have to go down to buy anything. 

In Hinduism, when we fast, we don't refrain from having food, or just have fruits. Along with fruits, there are a few ingredients that are allowed during fast. So the ladies make different recipes out of those ingredients  and yep, the Faraali Pattice Recipe is one of them. The dishes that are allowed during the fast are known as 'Faraal'. That's the reason why the name of this recipe is Faraali Pattice Recipe.

I'm sure you might have most of these ingredients at home.


Preparation Time: 15 Minutes
Cooking Time: 10 Minutes
Serves: 3
Veg/Non-Veg: Veg (Allowed during Fasting)

For Stuffing

Freshly Grated Coconut - 7 Tablespoons
Roasted and Crushed Peanuts (Daanyacha Kut)- 4 Tablespoons
Chopped Coriander Leaves - 3 Tablespoons
Chopped Raisins - 2 Teaspoons
Chopped Cashew-nuts - 2 Teaspoons
Ginger-green chilli paste - 2 Tablespoons
Sugar - 2 Tablespoons
Lemon Juice - 2 Tablespoons
Salt to taste

For Potato Mixture 
Boiled, Peeled, and Smashed Medium to Small Potatoes - 6
Roasted Multi-Grain Flour (Bhajani) - 4 Tablespoons
Salt to taste

For Raita
Coriander Leaves


1. In a bowl, put all the stuffing ingredients and mix them. Keep aside.

2. Take another large bowl and add mashed potatoes. In the potatoes, add flour and salt. Mix.

3. Make equal parts of the potato mixture, and keep aside.

4. Take each part, and flatten it like this.
5. Add the stuffing mixture inside, and close the mouth of the flattened potato mixture.
6. Make balls.
7. Deep fry in oil.

8. Let the balls turn into golden-brown colour.
9. Take the balls out of the oil, and place them on the tissue

10. For the raita, mix all the raita ingredients, and serve with freshly made hot pattice.

This experiment was one of my best. The pattice turned out to be so tasty...ah! They were crispy from the outside, and soft from the inside. Plus, the raisins were a surprise! Without them, the recipe would have been incomplete. Also, the raita was yummy too. 

Try this recipe for sure, and I bet your parents would love you all the more.
