Written by Sneh Chaudhry on October 14, 2021
- 1 cup milk powder,
- 1 cup sugar,
- 5 tbsp milk,
- 1 tbsp flour,
- ¼ tsp baking soda,
- ½ tsp lemon juice,
- 3-4 cardamom,
- oil 150 ml
- ½ cup water.
To begin with, first of all you need to prepare the sugar syrup. Take a deep pan and boil water and sugar together on medium flame. Once it starts boiling add lemon juice and crushed cardamom. Stir well and reduce the flame to low. Boil the mixture for 10-12 minutes and then turn off the flame and allow it to cool.
2. In the meantime, take a deep bowl and add milk powder, refined flour and baking soda. Mix them well and add some oil and mix the mixture properly. Add boiled milk and knead soft dough. Now, grease your palm with some oil and make smooth small balls of the dough.
3. Now, heat the remaining oil in a deep wok and once the oil is hot enough put 5-7 balls in it at a time. Fry on low flame till they turn brown. Keep swinging the wok with a piece of cloth and avoid spatula. Once done, take them out in a plate.
4. Lastly, reheat the sugar syrup again and add the fried balls in it. Boil the syrup along balls for 10-12 minutes on low flame, keep flipping the balls in between. Allow it to cool or serve hot with a garnish of saffron and crushed nuts.
