- Use white sandwich bread for this recipe.

Let’s take a look at the recipe
- Sugar -- 1 cup sugar
- Water -- 1 and 1/2 cups of water
- Cardamom powder -- 1/4 teaspoon
- Bread slices -- 8
- Milk -- 60 milliliters (7-8 TBSP)
Step 1: Sugar syrup
- In a deep pan, add 1 cup sugar, 1 and 1/2 cups of water.
- Stir until the sugar dissolves.
- Reduce the flame to low and let the syrup boil for 6-8 minutes on low flame.
- After about 7 minutes add 1/4 tsp of cardamom powder. Stir it well.
- Let it boil for another 8 -- 10 minutes on low flame.
- Once the sugar syrup is done switch it off and keep aside.
Step 2: Bread dough
- Take the bread slices and remove the brown edges using a sharp knife. Repeat the process with all the bread slices.
- Crumble bread slices into a large mixing bowl and grind the bread.
- And grind these crumbled pieces into a fine powder.
- Now, to the ground bread add milk gradually 2 tablespoons at a time and knead it into a dough.
- You will need a total of 8 tablespoons at a time.
- Take a small portion of the dough and make small balls. Repeat the process for the rest of the dough.
Step 3: Deep fry
- Heat sufficient oil in a heavy-bottomed skillet and once the oil is hot enough, reduce the flame to low.
- Now, drop all the bread balls into the oil one by one.
- Gently flip them, so that they fried evenly.
- After frying them on low flame for a minute, increase the flame to medium.
- Fry until the bread balls are golden brown in color. Usually, this takes up to 3-4 minutes.
- Once they are done, take them out of oil and onto a kitchen tissue paper or paper towel so that the excess oil is absorbed.
Step 4: Soak in sugar syrup
- Heat the syrup on low flame until it starts to bubble up.
