  • All Purpose flour- 2 cup
  • Cooking soda- 1/2 tsp
  • Ghee/butter/oil- 1/3 cup
  • Yogurt- 1/2 cup
  • Oil for deep frying

For the syrup:
  • Sugar- 1 1/2 cup
  • Lemon juice- a few drops
  • Cardamom powder-1/2 tsp
  • Water- 3/4 cup


  • In a bowl mix flour and cooking soda. Add ghee and rub the ghee with the flour.  
  • Add yogurt and mix it carefully so that it stays dry and forms a gluten free flaky dough. Leave it aside for about 20 minutes.
  • Make sugar syrup by boiling sugar in water. Allow it to simmer till it reaches one thread consistency.Add lemon juice so that sugar syrup does not solidify on cooling. Add cardamom and keep it ready.
  • Heat oil in a pan. Knead the dough smoothly, just a bit, not like chapati dough. 
  • Make small balls and flatten it and give it doughnut shape or any other shape you like.
  • Let the edges have cracks and be rough so that it can absorb sugar syrup well.
  • Fry in medium flame till golden brown on both sides.Take out from the hot oil and after a few seconds drop into the sugar syrup an leave it in sugar syrup for about 3-5 minutes. 
  • Take it out and let it cool down though you are tempted to eat it immediately.
