Total time:
Sindhi lolo is a sweet preparation made from wholewheat flour and sugar and jaggery syrup.Generally cooked on Sindhi festivals
  • 250 gms wheat flour
  • 60 gms sugar
  • 35 ml oil
  • Water
  • Green cardamons (choti elaichi)4-5
  1. In a saucepan boil about a cup of water, add sugar, cardamons (peeled or crushed)
  2. Let the sugar dissolve properly
  3. Alternatively some of sugar can be substituted with jaggery, so in that case boil jaggery and sugar together, also put a spoonful of milk as it will remove the impurities of sugar
  4. Now this is tricky as the syrup consistency should not be too thin or else the lolas will be less sweeter .It should be dark brownish in colour
  5. Now let the syrup cool off properly
  6. Strain it
  7. Take the wheat flour, mix oil and pour the syrup little by little and knead the flour, adding more syrup at intervals
  8. The dough should be stiff and if needed very small amount of water can be added
  9. Take a ball size portion of this dough and with the help of rolling pin roll it a little
  10. Put it on hot griddle and turn it on other side, you need to just roast it little
  11. Then roll it again a little, remembering that lolas are supposed to be really thick
  12. Then cook it on low flame, adding generous amount of oil and tossing it gently at regular intervals
  13. Since it is too thick, cook it on really low flame (some also use two griddles one above other to get perfect results) till small brown patches appears on both side
  14. Taste best with curd or onion pickle
