Jeera boli is a traditional sweet dish that I learnt from my grandmother.
What you need
Maida - 250gm
Sugar – 500gm
Butter – 50gm
Saffron powder - a pinch
Water - 600ml
Oil for deep frying - 300ml
Cardamom - 5
Mix maida, saffron powder and butter. Add a little water and make dough.
Make small chappati-like balls and set aside for two hours.
Roll out the balls and press them to a round shape and fold them into halves.
Deep fry them one by one in oil till they turn golden brown.
For jeera, add water to sugar in a pan and heat till it forms a two-string consistency. Add cardamom.
Now dip the deep fried bolis one by one in jeera and remove after two minutes.
