  1. In a bowl mix together the milk powder, all purpose flour, baking soda and rawa (if required).
  2. Add yoghurt or milk little by little to make it a smooth dough.
  3. If it is more sticky, add more yoghurt to make it smooth so that it won’t break.
  4. Keep aside for 25-30 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, in a pan, add sugar and water, bring to boil.
  6. Once it starts boiling, bring the flame to medium heat.
  7. Add crushed cardamon pods to it, saute for few minutes or until it start thickens.
  8. When it gets a syrup consistency, remove from heat and keep aside, allow it to cool a little.
  9. Grease your hand with little butter.

  11. Heat oil in a pan.
  12. Drop the 3-4 balls into medium heat oil and  fry it.
  13. When the balls starts floating use a spoon to turn the balls until it turns golden brown in color.

  15. Keep aside for 2-3 hours.
  16. Garnish with crushed almonds or pistas.
  17. Enjoy it with vanilla ice cream..YUMMY!!!


  • We will get 23- 25 balls from this measured dough.
  • Take care to heat the oil. If it is too hot the inner side of the balls will not get cooked. So fry the balls in low to medium flame.
  • The balls become more soft and sweeter when it is immersed in sugar syrup for 4-5 hours (if you can control yourself 😉 ).
