Vettu cake/ Fried sweetened dough

Recipe  can be found  @ Zesty South Indian Kitchen

What you need


All purpose flour: 1 + 1/8 cup

Egg: 1 ( I used a large egg)

Baking powder: ¼ teaspoon

Sugar: 1/4cup

Cardamom: 1 pod

Nutmeg: 1/8 teaspoon

Canola oil: 2 cups for frying


How I made


In a medium bowl mix, flour, cardamom, nutmeg powder and baking powder set aside. 


In a medium sauce pot add sugar and egg and when it slightly beaten add the flour mixture to form smooth dough and set aside for 40 minutes resting. (Add only enough flour to make smooth dough).


When you are ready to fry, heat 2 cups of canola oil in a deep bottomed pan. 


Shape the smooth dough into a log and then cut them into five 2x2.5 inch piece squares. Make a deep cut in the center and again one opposite to the first cut. 


Fry them in medium heat for 4 minutes flipping them in between to ensure uniform cooking .Make sure that oil is not too hot then outside gets burns earlier and inner dough will not be cooked. Once they are cooked remove from the oil using a slotted spoon and transfer to kitchen towel to remove excess oil. 


Enjoy with a hot cup of tea, you will addicted to it sure.
