All purpose flour: 1 + 1/8 cup
Egg: 1 ( I used a large egg)
Baking powder: ¼ teaspoon
Sugar: 1/4cup
Cardamom: 1 pod
Nutmeg powder: 1/8 teaspoon
oil: 2 cups for frying


In a medium bowl mix, flour, cardamom, nutmeg powder and baking powder set aside.
In a medium sauce pot add sugar and egg and when it slightly beaten add the flour mixture to form smooth dough and set aside for 40 minutes resting. (Add only enough flour to make smooth dough).
When you are ready to fry, heat 2 cups of canola oil in a deep bottomed pan.
Shape the smooth dough into a log and then cut them into 5 inch piece squares. Make a deep cut in the center and again one opposite to the first cut.
Fry them in medium heat for 4 minutes flipping them in between to ensure uniform cooking .Make sure that oil is not too hot then outside gets burns earlier and inner dough will not be cooked. Once they are cooked remove from the oil using a slotted spoon and transfer to kitchen towel to remove excess oil.
Enjoy with a hot cup of masala tea.
