Labongo latika

                             This is a sweet dish from bengal.Bengalis like sweets a lot and it plays a vital role in their diningtable and their social  ceremonies.Labongo means "clove".clove is used to seal the envelope like folding of the dough.

                           The stuffing is made of khoya,un sweetened condensed milk.It is generally available in the market or you can prepare at home.I have tried a new and easy version of making khoya,I made the khoya with milk powder.

                       I made this dish for the SNC - South Vs North Challenge by Divya Pramil.This group is having north team and south team.Every month they are challenging each other with their authentic dish.I belong to south team and this month Sanoli Ghosh from sanolisrecipies challenged south team with Labongo latika.


For the dough:

Maida-1 cup 

sugar pr-1 tbsp  

salt-a pinch 

baking pr-a pinch 

 nutmeg pr-a pinch 

saffron-few strands soakes in 1 tbsp of warm water  

ghee-11/2 tbsp warm water as needed to knead a soft dough.  

cloves-10 nos 


 In a bowl add maida,sugar pr,salt,baking pr,saffron water and ghee mix well add warm water slowly to the mixture and knead well till it becomes a soft dough.Cover it with a wetcloth and set aside for 20 mins.

khoya filling:

Skimmed milk powder-1 cup 

 hotwater-1/2 cup

 sugar- 4 tbsp or according to your taste

                                Mix them well with a whisk and pour into a saucepan.Heat till the sauce thickens and doesnot stick to the spoon when it cooled down.If it reaches the consistency then cool it down.

Sugar syrup:

sugar-1 cup 

water-1/2 cup 

cloves 2-3 nos(I have omitted rose essence and used cloves to make it smells clove)

                      Mix all ingredients and make two strands thick syrup.keep it warm.


                                        Cut the dough into 10 equal parts.Take one ball and roll them flat then fill in the mixture in centre and close the sides and make an envelope.pierce each envelope with clove and fry them in hot oil and arrange them in a plate.Pour the sugar syrup over it and serve.
