This is a crispy fried snack, which is coated in a sugar syrup which has cooked really well, so it creates a sugary crust over the cuts..Some people add sugar to the dough and make, but i prefer it this way. It is more tasty..

I hope you will try this out and let me know how it turned out for you..

Preparation Time : 10 mins
Cooking Time : 20 to 25 mins
Makes : 3 cups to 4 cups


All Purpose Flour / Maida - 1 cup
Salt a pinch
Ghee or Butter - 1 tblspn
Water as needed
Sugar - 1/2 cup
Water - 1/4 cup
Oil for Deep Frying


Take flour, salt, ghee in a bowl and rub with your fingers till it resembles a coarse crumb. Add water slowly and knead to a dough. Let it rest for 30 mins or so.

Now take a small portion of dough and roll it little thin. Now cut it into small diamond shape.

Heat oil for deep frying, drop the diamond in hot oil and fry till golden. Drain and set aside.

Now make the syrup. Heat sugar and water in a pan, mix well till sugar is melted, now boil it and cook till two string consistency. It will be thick.

Now add the fried diamond cuts in this and coat it well. As it cools the sugar will harden.

Cool this completely and store it in a air tight container. This stays good for 2 weeks..

  1. Hi Aarthy,
    I usually use to add sugar powder in dough itself and after reading this method I tried it. I just love this way,. Instead of diwali snack it became evening snack at my home.

  2. Dear Aarthy,

    I have yet to try your recipes but they do all look so yummy. I will definitely try them as we love Indian food.
    Thank you for sharing your recipes.
