Goujas


Ingredients:

All Purpose Flour (Maida) - 1 1/2 cups
Corn Flour - 2 tsps
Rice Flour - 1/2 cup (for dusting)
Water - 1/2 cup (approx)
Powdered Sugar - 1 1/2 cups
Cardamom Powder - 2 tsps
Solidified ghee - 1/2 cup
Salt to taste
Oil for deep frying

Method:


  1. In a clean dry bowl mix together powdered sugar and cardamom powder. Keep aside.
  2. In another bowl, mix maida, corn flour, salt and water. Knead into a smooth but tight dough. Sprinkle a few more drops of water while kneading the dough, but only if required. 
  3. Take small portions of the dough and make gooseberry sized balls.
  4. Heat oil in a pan.
  5. Dust a dough ball with generous amount of rice flour and roll it into very thin disc. Dusting the rice flour helps to separate the layers while deep frying.
  6. Smear 1/4 tsp ghee evenly on the disc.
  7. Draw vertical lines using a sharp knife as shown in the picture below.
  8. Now carefully roll the disc and twist it gently.

  9. Deep fry in oil until golden brown on low flame.
  10. Immediately dust it with powdered sugar mixture. 
  11. Repeat this with the remaining dough.
  12. Serve.
  13. Once cooled to room temperature, store in air tight container
