Mix all purpose flour with water to make dough. Shape dough into 8-10 balls. Set aside.

In a separate bowl mix rice flour and clarified butter to form a nice thin paste.

Make thin rolls from the above maida (whole wheat flour) balls and spread the rice flour paste over them.

Join 3 rolls side-to-side so that it makes one thick shape. Fold it in half and cut into long rectangles, then reshape into dough balls.

Heat oil in a pan and fry the dough balls until they are golden brown. Drain the excess oil and set aside.

In a separate pan, boil milk and simmer until it reduces by half; then add sugar and cardamom powder.
