1 tsp sugar
1 tbsp corn starch
1 tsp oil
1 tsp dry yeast
1 tsp cardamom
1 tsp saffron
3/4 cup warm water you may need less, so add slowly

Date syrup, honey or sugar syrup and sesame seeds optional for sprinkling on top
– Blend ingredients well until you get a combined smooth batter.
– Pour in a bowl, cover, and let it double in size in warm place for at least one hour.
– In a deep frying pan, add oil and when hot reduce to medium heat.
– To test how hot the oil is, take a teaspoon from the batter, and carefully drop it in the oil, if it floats quickly, the oil is too hot.
– Dip a spoon in separate oil, then take a heaped teaspoon from batter, push the batter off it using another spoon. Careful while dropping the batter in oil.
– When the dumplings are light brown, remove from oil, and place them on kitchen paper.
– Pour your favorite syrup on top. The syrup should be at room temperature.
– Best served hot!
