Ingredients :

450 g


1 teaspoon

115 g

1 tablespoon

175 g

15 g

150 ml

115 ml

55 g

caster sugar

green cardamom pods, bruised

rose water

plain flour

baking powder

low fat milk powder

butter, melted

natural yogurt



pinch saffron threads

vegetable oil for frying

rose petals, to decorate (optional)

Method :

Put sugar and 450 ml water in a heavy-based pan and heat gently, stirring occasionally, until sugar dissolves. Bring to the boil, then boil for about 5 minutes or until thickened and syrupy. Stir in cardamom pods, rose water and saffron threads and keep warm. Meanwhile, sift flour and baking powder together into a mixing bowl and stir in milk powder. Mix in butter and yogurt and enough milk to make a soft dough.


With floured hands, divide dough into 24 pieces. Make a depression in centre of each and press in 2 or 3 raisins. Cover raisins with dough and roll into balls. Half fill a deep fat pan or fryer with oil and heat to 190c (375F). Fry 4 or 5 balls at a time, for 3-5 minutes, until a deep golden brown. Drain on absorbent kitchen paper, then add to syrup. Serve hot, decorated with rose petals, if wished.

Serves 4-6
