2 cups all purpose flour/maida
Pinch of salt
2 tbsp ghee
Oil to fry
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp cardamom powder
Make a soft dough of maida, salt, ghee and water. Keep covered for 1/2 hour. Make small balls of it and roll it into medium thickness pooris. Make lines using a knife without cutting the edges like in the picture.
Roll it and twist it a bit. Repeat for the rest of the dough and deep fry the pieces till crisp and golden brown.
Heat the sugar with 1/2 cup water and allow it to come to soft ball consistency. (When you put a drop of the syrup in a small cup of water, you should be able to gather it into a soft ball)Add the cardamom powder and then the fried pieces to it and mix well. Transfer immediately to a greased plate and seperate the pieces.
