1. Dalda - 1 cup (Davara)
2. Maida - 3 cups
3. Cooking soda - A pinch
4. Sugar - 1.5 cups (depending on the intensity of a sweet tooth you have, you can reduce or increase this quantity)
5. Curd - 1/2 cup
6. Water - 1/4 cup (for sugar syrup)
Take a pinch of cooking soda in a small cup. Add a couple of teaspoons full of curd and beat them well together until the soda dissolves.
Take the 1.5cups sugar in a heavy bottomed vessel. I used a pressure cooker without its lid.
Pour the 1/4th cup of water into this vessel. Dissolve the sugar in the water and bring it to a boil.
Boil only until it becomes slightly sticky. Do not boil it too much or the sugar will not soak into the dough and will only crystallize on the surface. As shown in the picture below, the syrup should slowly drip.
Press with your thumb in the middle of the circular dough and then poke a few holes on its surface all around, using a sharp object like a pin.
Now deep-fry these cakes on a medium flame, until it turns golden brown which indicates that it's fully cooked.
