Wishing you all a Happy Diwali and have a wonderful and safe diwali.
The quickest and easiest diwali sweet is maida chips or diamonds (which we kids used to call when my mom made them when we were kids)This is my mom recipes and it can done in a savories too.And this sweet calls for very few ingredients.Here goes the recipe :-
Maida/plain flour 1 1/2 cup
Ghee 1/4th cup
Sugar 1 cup
Oil for deep frying
Make a hard dough with maida,ghee and water similar to puri dough.Let it rest for 1/2 an hour.
In the meanwhile take the sugar in a deep bowl and add water just till the sugar.Leave a side so that sugar dissolves in the water.
Make balls similar to cricket ball and roll out into a big round circle.Dusting on both the sides.
Make long cuts diagonal and vertical lines and the cut pieces should resembles diamond shape.(I have a spoon which can be seen in the picture which a small disc at one end.I always use that spoon to cut the diamond shapes.
Heat oil in a heavy bottom kadai and deep fry the cut diamonds in batches till golden colour.
In the meanwhile make sugar syrup.Let it cook till you get thick syrup.To check if it is done or not,take water in a small plate and add a spoon of the syrup to the water.With your fingers if you can make a ball then the syrup is ready.
Then slowly add the diamonds to the sugar syrup and mix and take them on a plate.Once they are warm try to separate each pieces.
