Whole Wheat Flour 3/4 cup
Fine Semolina 1/4 cup
Raw sugar 2 tbsp
Fresh Cream/Malai 3 tbsp
Ghee 1 tbsp
Cardamom Powder 1/2 tsp + 1/4 tsp
Milk 2 tbsp
Castor Sugar 2 tbsp
Oil for frying
Beat malai, ghee, sugar and 1/2 tsp cardamom powder for 2 minutes.
Add flour gradually until you get a dough that is firm enough to roll.
If the dough feels very dry, add 1 tbsp milk at a time. I had to add 2 tbsp milk.
Make a ball, brush it with oil, ,cover and let the dough rest for 30 minutes.
Roll it into a 15 inch by 10 inch rectangle on a parchment paper.
Using a pastry wheel or knife, cut into 1 1/2 inch wide strips.
Cut diagonally at 2 1/2 inch intervals.
Fold each diamond in the centre to get a bow. Press it lightly.
Heat oil for frying, fry these few at a time until golden brown.
Fry on medium heat so that these get cooked from inside.
Remove them on an absorbent paper.
Similarly fry all the crisps.
Dust them with castor sugar mixed with 1/4 tsp Cardamom Powder.
The dough is quite delicate, so handle carefully.
