My mother used to make these makki sweet tikkias. I always loved the sweet taste of jaggrey/shakar. These are very easy to make and very nutritious .In Pakistan you can easily get maize flour from any shop.


Maiz/ makki flour2 cups
Jaggrey / shakar1 cup
Water1 cup
Cardamom (crushed)2-3
Dessicated coconut 1/4 cup
Nuts (almonds,pistachio,walnuts)as needed
Oilfor frying


  • Sieve maiz/makki flour and set aside.
  • In a pan add shakar in 1 cup of water, let it dissolve and strain this as well.
  • Add cardamom, coconut, nuts and knead flour with shakar water, set aside.
  • Now roll the dough to make a thin flat circle/roti and cut with doughnut cutter.
  • I made small balls and then roll them and fried using 2 tbsp oil.
  • Fry on medium flame and when become crispy and golden place on paper towel, serve hot.
  • You can add powder sugar if you want to increase sugar according to your taste
