    Dear Mullai, I am a big fan of you for past two and half years. With the same proportion you mentioned and with same procedure, your recipe never failed for me…Never… I am having a doubt, instead of making the Maida dough, Can I use wonton/dumpling wraps that we get from Chinese shop. That will save some time:-). Since this time I am deviating from your procedure, I am asking you. Planning to do this for the deepavali, your reply will be highly appreciated.

       That's a nice thought, but some of those sheets include egg. Try ready made pastry dough or pie crust, it should work. But not sure how much oil it would absorb when u deep fry as most of them contain lots of butter already mixed as its meant for baking. Won ton seems like a good whip up… let me know if you make a dare attempt. Thanks.

    Mullai,just fnshd…came out gud except the syrup part…i did simultaneously..but i couldnt concentrate on both since syrup part s difficult for me…can we fnsh fryng then start syrup????

    1. Mullai

      Ramya, not a problem.. you can fry them first and then start making the syrup when you do the last batch. Keep them close to stove so that they dont dry out completely. Want them to be slightly warm when u coat, bcos that way little of the syrup soaks and rest crystallizes. Hope this helps. All the best.

        Thanq mullai….vl try next time…now after cooling, the last batch luks like urs…and the previous ones r bit sticky becos of the syrup consistency.

        Got gud appreciation 4m my MIL.

      Sugan, In just 2 hours you can also bring Adyar Anandha Bhavan to your place. No big deal, try and let know the results.

      That's not a valid excuse here in SpiceIndiaonline. Try during the holidays, the only tricky part is sugar syrup, which you can avoid and instead, roll them in powdered sugar while they are still hot. Oops!! forgot to mention this in my recipe. Season's Greetings!
