Ingredients Serving: 8

  1. Dough: 2 ½ cup flour 2 cups water 1 tbsp sugar.
  2. 2 tbsp semolina
  3. 2 tbsp butter
  4. 1 tbsp corn starch
  5. A pinch of salt
  6. 3 eggs
  7. Oil for frying
  8. Pistachios handful
  9. For the Syrup: 3 ½ cup sugar
  10. For the Syrup: 3 ½ cup sugar
  11. 3 cups water
  12. 1 tbsp lemon juice


  1. Prepare Syrup: Boil water add sugar and lemon juice. Boil for 5-10 minutes and let it cool.
  2. For the dough: Put water and butter in a pot. Mix it well to melt butter in water.
  3. Sift in flour, add salt and sugar and mix it fast with a wooden spoon until you have a non sticky dough about 10 minutes over low heat.
  4. Take the pot off from stove and let the dough cool down. Break eggs into it one by one and mix with your hands.
  5. Add in cornstarch and semolina and continue mixing with hands until you have a creamy dough. Fill a frying pan with oil. Fill the dough into a piping bag with a nozzle. Or you can just cut the corner of piping bag.
  6. Squeeze dough pieces into oil when it is still cold. Cut with oiled scissors every time. Let them double in size over medium heat. The slower they are fried, the crunchier they are.
  7. After they are fried, transfer them into cold syrup. Keep them in syrup for 1-2 minutes.
  8. Before frying the rest of dough, let the frying oil be cold and repeat the same steps.
  9. Serve cold with coarsely chopped pistachios.
