Chhatisgarh, is a state in Central India,which is 10th largest state of India.Its believed that Chhattisgarh got its  name from the 36 pillars of Chhatishgarhin Devi Temple, chhattis means 36 and garh means fort.The state of Chhattisgarh is known as the rice bowl of Central India. Most of the traditional and tribal foods are prepared with rice and rice flour. You know wat, one of the common meal Chhattisgarh people enjoy during scroching summer is Bore Baasi which is one of ancient food which we would have tasted atleast once in our life. Yes this Bore Baasi is nothing a day old cooked rice served with rice soaked water or buttermilk or else with curd and it is served along with pickle or shallots.

Chhattisgarh have its own tribal cuisine,coming to this Khurmi, its one of the traditional sweets prepared in this state. Along with khurmi, balooshahi,kusli and gulgula are well known sweets of Chhattisgarh. While googling i got this healthy but deep fried Khurmi recipe from here, this sweet is very easy to prepare but very addictive.

Looks tempting. I am going to try these and have a question. Do they turn softer because of the wheat flour if we store longer?
