Directions Edit

  1. Mix the powdered milk with baking powder.
  2. Then add the eggs and 4 tablespoons of oil.
  3. Mix well and form into ½ inch balls, by rolling in your hands.
  4. If the mix becomes too dry to roll, add a little more beaten egg.
  5. In a pan combine the sugar with 1½ cups of water, the cardamom, and the saffron.
  6. Boil for 3 – 4 minutes.
  7. Remove from heat and allow to cool until warm (but no longer hot).
  8. In a frying pan, heat 1 tablespoon of oil over medium-low heat.
  9. Add half of the balls.
  10. Cook until the balls are a light brown on all sides.
  11. Do this by constantly tilted and turning the pan, so the balls continually roll around from one side to another.
  12. Place the balls in the warm syrup.
  13. Allow to remain in the syrup for about five minutes or until you have finished frying the second half of the balls.
  14. Remove from the syrup and drain on kleenex tissue or kitchen paper.
  15. Cover with another piece of tissue or kitchen paper and allow to sit for at least three hours before serving.
  16. Enjoy! it is hard to keep your hands off these ones!.
