Meethe Poode or Meethe pue as they are sometimes called are the Punjabi version of pan cakes. In each cuisine you will find dishes that are similar and adapted to local taste.
There is also a festival called Ahoi Ashtami, which is for the well being of children. For Ahoi mothers make meethe poode and serve it with sooji ka halwa. In the evening after the pooja, as a ritual, we were supposed to knock on our front door and mom would call us in and give a bite size pooda and a small spoon of halwa. This is repeated seven times.
Unlike pan cakes that are served with Fruits , Jam or Honey , Meetha Pooda goes very well with mango pickle, especially heeng ka achaar. It is mostly served as a breakfast or evening snack. Meethe poode are also pan fried or deep fried. I prefer to make it with the least oil so just add half a spoon of ghee.
