Though am running a month of blogging marathon, i couldnt stop myself to dish out some super duper healthy Alsi ki Pinni for this month's Shhhh cooking secretly event. This month's Shhh Cooking Secretly, a monthly event started by me, which is now hosted by Mayuri Patel is taking you all to Haryanvi Cuisine. You might have noticed that since few months, we are cooking from different Regional cuisines of India. After dishing out some delightful dishes from Gujarati cuisine, this month's event is all about Haryana. Alsi ki pinni is a very popular sweet in Haryana which is prepared with Alsi aka flax seeds, whole wheat flour, ghee, edible gum/gond, jaggery and cardamom powder.Pinni are prepared during winter as they gives lot of warm and energy to the body. Alsi aka lin seeds are extremely healthy and quite beneficial for cold and cough, as they gives strength. Lin seeds contains many nutritional properties, which control the cholesterol level of your body.

Haryana cuisine is very much influenced by Punjabi cuisine, obviously Alsi ki pinni is a very known healthy sweet balls from Punjabi cuisine. However Harynavi cuisine owns this fantastic balls as well.I tried this flaxseeds sweet balls for the first time and we loved these balls to the core. I couldnt event stop myself munching these sweet balls as they were extremely delicious and dangerously addictive.

Dry roast the flax seeds in a pan until they starts crackling, remove them from the pan, keep aside.

In the same pan, dry roast the wheat flour until a nice aroma comes from.
