Method - How to make Alsi Ki Pinni
Sieve the Alsi (Linseeds or Flax Seeds) on a plate.
Put the alsi in a dry pan and roast it. Alsi make twisting sound while getting roasted. Now grind it in a mixer, but do not over grind it.
Roast the wheat flour in ghee until it turns brown and leaves the fragrance. Take it out in a separate bowl.
Break the gond and roast it in the ghee. The gond will rise up. Fry it until it turns brown and take it out in a separate bowl. Press them with a roller on a plate and grind it.
Now roast the alsi in the left over ghee and roast it on a medium or low flame until it turns brown and starts to leave its fragrance.
Chop the cashews, almonds and pistachios.
Put jaggery or sugar (250 gms.) in the water (1 1/4 cup) in a pan. Stir the mixture till the sugar dissolves completely into the water. Test the syrup by putting it between your forefinger and thumb. If the syrup leaves a string while parting the two, then it means the syrup is ready. Turn off the flame.
Put roasted flour, roasted alsi, chopped nuts, gond into it and mix well. Let the mixture cool down a little. Take out a small portion of the mixture equal to the size of a lemon. Prepare laddoo from the whole mixture giving it round shape. You can also try molding the mixture in the shape of a burfee.
If you want to make burfee then pour the mixture in a greased tray and let it set. Once the mixture sets down cut it into the square shape.
Alsi pinni is ready. Store the pinni in an air-tight container , that can be consumed for over one month. Eat it everyday along with tea.
Keep the flame low or medium while frying the gond. Else they will do not rise well on high flame and also remains raw from inside.
Roast the Alsi on medium and low flame (It might burn on high flame).
make sure that the sugar dissolves well while making the syrup.

My first attempt was amazing. My second attempt yesterday, i added a few more ingredients; sesame seeds, walnuts, a LOT more raisins. I toasted all the nuts & seeds before coarsely grinding and set aside, as well as the alsi. Then I replaced wheat flour with spelt (gluten free), and mixed with ghee. Kept a runny consistency by adding more ghee, then added all other ingredients and kept stirring on low heat for 30 minutes. Allowed to cool and made balls. Tastes DELICIOUS!!! BUT... I then found the bowl of fried and crushed gond!!! I had totally forgotten to add it!!! ahh well. Wasted gond. But it bound together without any problem. How!! Is it the ghee that hold the balls together?? I thought that was the point of the gond??!!

Hi Nisha, should we wait for the sugar syrup to come to room temperature before adding all the ingredients, or should we add when the syrup is hot.
