Fried Cake


Fried cake  is deep fried sweet dough and has a crispy outer and a soft bread like texture in the inside. sprinkle powdered sugar or cinnamon sugar while it is still warm. This is a perfect tea time snack.

Ingredients
All Purpose Flour- 2 cups
Egg-2
( I used three egg whites)
Dry active yeast - 1 tsp
Sugar- 1/2 cup
Butter- 2 tsp
Cardamon-   6-7
Nutmeg -1/4 tsp
salt- a pinch
thick coconut milk 1/4 cup( optional you may also use water)
oil for frying

Combine well all the dry ingredients flour,salt,cardamon and nutmeg and dry active yeast
Beat egg yolk and white separately. Make sure the white are light and fluffy. Add sugar and beat well. Mix in the flour little by little to form a thick dough just like you do for chapati. Mix coconut milk---spoon in little by little only if  you feel that the dough needs a little more moister. Set this aside for at least  two hours. Roll the dough log shapes and tie it into a knot, or flatten and cut into desired shapes.Deep fry in hot oil. It will double its size.Flip and fry till both sides are golden brown. You can sprinkle with sugar if you like while hot.

Try this..
Hope you will all enjoy..
