2.Salt – a pinch.
3.Veg.oil – 1/2 cup (for the dough)
4.Sugar – 2 cups.
5.Water – 3/4 cup.
6.Oil for deep frying.
1.Take a large bowl, add flour and salt and mix well. Add 1/2 cup of oil. Rub flour with oil for 5 minutes. Add water little by little and knead lightly to form a dough.Cover the dough with a moist cloth and allow it to rest for 30 minutes.
2.After 30 minutes divide the dough into two parts. Take one part and using flour roll it into 1/3 inch thickness. Cut the rolled into thin strips.
3.Heat enough oil in a frying pan. When hot reduce the heat. Group the flour strips into 4 to 5 batches. Fry each batch until golden brown. The temp.of the oil should be low. Take out the fried strips with a slotted spoon and keep in a large bowl.
4.Boil sugar and water in a pan. Stir continuously till a thick syrup is found. Put a drop of syrup in a cup of cold water, if it forms a hard ball the sugar is ready. Using a spoon add the syrup over the fried strips. Mix fast but carefully. Coat all the strips with syrup. Allow it to cool completely.
