make  a hard dough by sprinkling water


pinch out small portions from the dough

make balls with the palm


roll each in oblong shape

pierce with fork on each side
get each batch ready to fry


keep separated from each other

fry in small batches in low to medium heat till reddish brown,fry on both sides

warm up the syrup in the micro and keep it ready
