Preparation Method :

  • Sift the flour into a bowl and add the yogurt, yeast and enough cold water to form a batter of double cream consistency.
  • Cover and leave in a warm place for about 4-6 hours to ferment.
  • Dissolve the sugar with the water in a pan over a low heat with the saffron, cardamoms and cloves. Bring to the boil and cook to produce a heavy syrup. Set aside.
  • Heat the vegetable oil in a large pan. Pour the batter in a steady stream through an icing bag, to form coil shapes in the hot oil.
  • Make a few coils at a time and cook for about 1 minute, turning, until they are light brown and crisp.
  • Remove the coils from the pan with a slotted spoon, drain on kitchen paper, then immerse in the sugar syrup for about 3-5 minutes.
  • Remove them from the syrup; drain and dust with icing sugar. Serve warm and crisp.
