Ghotaab Recipe
made with eggs, yogurt, flour, almonds, sugar and cardamom powder
Makes 4 Servings

Ingredients
  • medium eggs, two
  • yogurt, 100 grams
  • cooking oil, 100 grams
  • flour, 150 grams
  • baking powder, one teaspoon
  • almonds, 250 grams (0.55 lbs)
  • fine sugar, 150 grams
  • cardamom powder, one spoonful


Method

Separate egg-yolks and mix well with baking powder, cooking oil and yogurt. Add flour gradually while stirring the mix. Pour the dough in a plastic bag and leave for 1-2 hours.

Peel and ground almonds. Mix well with sugar and cardamom powder. Spread some flour on a table-top. Make orange-sized balls from the dough. Flatten the ball on the table-top to a thickness of 0.5 cm using a roller.

Cut circles into the dough with a cup. Place some of the almond-sugar mix at the center of each circle. Bring the edges of the circle together and press to close completely.

Fry in pre-heated oil until colour changes. Drain the excess oil, then roll in fine sugar.
