Special Diwali Sweets (flaky sugar dipped pillows)

Here is a very tasty sweet for your diwali menu.I have no name for this,but it is a cross between a Chiroti and Khaja,this sweet dish has a very unique taste as its flaky and you then get a wonderful crunch from the toasted almonds.
I promise you your family and guests will love this,do try it out and let me know how you like it !

 Follow the link for the detailed recipe of  Chirote Inspired Sweet.
You will get the dough measurments from the link above.
Once you make the dough you can get creative and top it with dry fruits,add chocolate syrup or for the stuffing you can also spread with a mix of besan and rice flour.
The choice is totally yours !

Back to the recipe !
make a paste with rice flour and ghee - mix till creamy
toast the almonds and chop for garnish
after following the same recipe of the Chiroti inspired sweet(link above)
apply the rice flour and ghee  paste  and instead of cutting them small cut them a bit big and flatten with a fork...
then fry on a low heat till golden brown

                                                          they will get big and a bit puffy

they are crispy and light after frying
make sure you fry on low heat so it cooks evenly

after frying,cool for 5 min,then dip in sugar syrup i added cardamon and saffron to the syrup
 Once you dip them in syrup top with chopped almonds and allow to rest.
Now your done,enjoy this wonderful sweet and do not forget to share !

we have 2 kinds of sweets
1. topped with powdered sugar
2. soaked in sugar syrup
I loved both !!
