Diamond Cuts

  • All purpose flour 2 cup
  • Beaten egg 2 1/2 Tbsp
  • Cardamom seeds 2
  • Water 1/2 cup
  • Pinch of salt
  • Oil
For Sugar Syrup:
  • Sugar 1/2 cup
  • Water 2 Tsp
  • Cardamom seed 1
Mix the all purpose flour, salt and beaten egg. Add water little by little into the flour and knead it into a soft dough, like chappathi. Add crushed cardamom into this and knead well. Cover it with a damp cloth and keep it aside for 15 mins. Divide the dough into medium sized balls and roll it out into thin rounds. Then cut it diagonally from left and from right to get diamond shaped pieces. Heat oil in a kadai and fry the diamonds till it turns into golden colour. Transfer it to a paper towel and cool it.

For preparing sugar syrup, mix together sugar and water and boil it, till it reaches to a consistency that will help coat the fried diamond cuts. Add the crushed cardamom and coat the diamond cuts in syrup. Transfer it to a tray and cool it.
