- Mix them well with your hands, sprinkle little water and knead it to dough.
- Let the dough rest for 5 to 10 mins, so that the sugar would get melted.
- Meanwhile heat oil in a kadai. Take a small portion of the rolled out dough and roll it in between your palms (lengthwise).
- Chop them into small pieces and deep fry them in oil.
- Cook only in medium flame, so that it would be cooked well else it would be burnt and remain uncooked in the center.

Note: Measurement is very important in this recipe, if the butter gets increased it would be flaky and if it gets reduced it would be hard. Also if the sugar gets increased it would be burnt immediately, so take care of the measurements. Make sure only to sprinkle water when you knead the dough.
