1 big cup of maida
2 -3 tbsp ghee
Pinch of salt
Oil/ghee to fry
1 cup sugar
Pinch of red orange colour
1/4 tsp cardamom powder
Make a one string sugar syrup and add the colour and cardamom powder to it.
Rub the ghee well into the maida. Add the pinch of salt and make a soft dough using water. Take small balls of it and roll them into thin puris. Fold it into half and then one-fourth to get a conical shape. Roll out again trying to maintain the same shape, this time let them being a bit thicker. Repeat for rest of the balls.
Heat oil/ghee and fry them two or three at a time on very slow heat so that it gets cooked inside well. When it starts changing colour, dip them in the sugar syrup for about 2 minutes and transfer them to a seperate plate. Garnish with chopped dryfruits.
