How to make soft sirir naru/Jhuri bhaja naru
Siri or jhuri bhaja(in Bengali) is a type of snack made from gram flour. It makes a naru or ladoo which is called sirir naru. These narus are only prepared during Durgapujo, Bijaya Dashami, or Lakkhi pujo also mainly in the village side. It is very tasty but it will be hard.

How to make soft sirir naru
Take a big kadai or pan, heat, and add the jhola gur/liquid jaggery heat it for 2 minutes, and stir it continuously for 5 minutes in high flame.
Add the Siri (which is made from gram flour) and mix it properly.
Stir it continuously till the mixture becomes sticky and well mixed.
Now take it out from the oven and place it on a big flat plate to cool fast.
After pouring it in a plate, very fast you have to make the ladoos, otherwise, it will become hard and will stick to the plate.
While making ladoos, use ghee in your palm and put a cup of cold water ready, in case the mixture sticks in your palm.
Now after making all the Narus, allow them to cool at room temperature.
Now your sirir naru is ready. Either you can eat it now or you can preserve it for the future by keeping it in an air-tight bottle.
