How to Make It

1. Step
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and baking soda.
2. Step
Add the yogurt and ¼ teaspoon of cardamom.
3. Step
Add ½ cup (120 ml) of water and the orange food coloring. The batter should have the consistency of a thick pancake batter. Add more water if needed.
4. Step
Cover and let rest in a warm place for 10-12 hours to ferment, or until small bubbles develop on top of the batter.
5. Step
Once the batter has fermented, add the sugar and ½ cup (120 ml) of water to a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat.
6. Step
Add the remaining ¼ teaspoon of cardamom, the saffron strands, and lemon juice.
7. Step
Simmer until a sticky syrup develops, about 5 minutes.
8. Step
Whisk the batter and add a tablespoon of water if the batter looks too thick. Transfer to a squeeze bottle or piping bag.
9. Step
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-low until it reaches 350°F (180°C).
10. Step
Squeeze the batter into the hot oil, making small circular spiral shapes.
11. Step
Increase the heat to medium-high.
12. Step
Fry the dough shapes until they are crispy on both sides, about 5 minutes.
13. Step
Remove and immediately dip in the syrup mixture.
14. Step
Serve with rabri, if desired.
15. Step
Enjoy!
