An emarati delicacy. It is served almost in every emarati parties and occassions and I love this! I tried getting a ready made mix from the store and prepare it but it did not taste good! Finally I got this recipe from a sweet emarati friend of mine! Do try it out guys! Its worth it!
2 cups plain flour / maida
1 tbsp yeast
2 tbsp sugar
3/4 cup oil
1/2 tsp salt
4 tbsp milk powder
1 1/2 cup water
1 cup Sugar
1/2 cup water
Make sugar syrup and keep to cool
Mix sugar, yeast and warm water. Keep aside for 5 minutes till it becomes frothy.
Mix maida, milk powder, salt and oil. Add yeast mixture and rest of water. Mix well. Cover with damp cloth and keep for exactly 20 minutes.
Fry little by little in hot oil. It will puff up like balls.
Drain in oil paper and arrange in serving dish. Drizzle sugar syrup. Optionally you can drizzle date syrup instead of sugar syrup or do half and half of both. It will make it even more yummy.
