Thekua, is a traditional Bihari sweet that is offered as a Prasad during chhath puja festivities. Every year after chhath puja, my domestic help Mamta, who is from Bihar, brings thekua for us. Not only the taste but the shape of thekua had always fascinated me but somehow never got a chance to make it.
Last month, in mega marathon, I was looking for some flatbread that starts with letter ‘T’. Then this thekua came to my mind. I asked Mamta for its recipe. She was so excited that I wanted to make a dish from her State that she not only told me the process of making it but also brought thekua molds from her house. As she was getting late, so couldn’t help me in making them. When she came back the next day, I gave her some to taste. She was like ‘yeh to hum se bhi ache bne hein’. That was a real compliment as she is an expert in making thekua and she loved mine.
