How to make ARCOT MAKKAN PEDA

  1. In a large mixing bowl, add maida, khoya, sooji, ghee and milk and mix together. Knead it to make a soft and supple dough. Cover it with a muslin cloth and keep aside while you prepare the syrup.
  2. For making syrup, heat water in a sauce pan and add sugar into it along with few strands of saffron and cardamom powder or rose essence which ever you like.
  3. Let sugar melt in the water and cook till you get one a strong consistency.
  4. Meanwhile finely chop all the chosen nuts and keep aside.
  5. Pinch a lemon sized ball from the dough, flatten it into a disk and stuff a teaspoon of chopped nuts in between. Roll it to make a fine and smooth ball. Make sure there should not be any cracks, else the balls will open while frying.
  6. Using similar method, make rest of the stuffed balls with the dough. As the Makkan Pedas are a little big in size so i got 8 balls from the dough.
  7. Heat oil in a wok till piping hot. Reduce the flame and carefully slide in the balls and fry in low heat till dark brown in color.
  8. Transfer the fried balls into the sugar syrup and let them immerse completely for few minutes or till they double the their size.
  9. Serve Hot !!!
