Yield: 20 servings
Total Time: 50 minutes Prep Time: 20 Minutes Cook Time: 30 Minutes
- -2 cups instant skim milk powder
- -1/2 cup GF All Purpose Flour (preferable bob’s Mill)
- -2/3 cup whipping (+ milk)
- -1/2 tsp scant baking soda
- -4 cups water
- -2 tbsp rose water
- -oil for frying
Method of Preparation:
- Make Sugar syrup and set aside: combine sugar and water to wide pan and bring it to a boil. Turn the heat to medium and let simmer for about 7-8min. Add rose water and keep it warm
- Make dough: combine flour, milk powder and baking soda together. Add whipping cream and bind the mixture with your fingers to form a loose and sticky dough.
- Scrape the dough from your fingers and the sides of the bowl and let sit for 5 minutes so the dough firms up like cookie dough.
- Once the dough is firmer, divide it into equal parts the size of a nickel. Grease your palms and roll the pieces into little balls. (There should be no cracks!)
- While the dough is being rolled out, have the oil heating in a pan/wok so to deep fry the balls.
- Keep the dough balls covered in a bowl with a wet towel. Test the oil with a ball if needed to make sure the heat is just right!
- When the oil is ready, gently slide in 4-7 at a time in the oil. The balls will sink to the bottom and will rise themselves.
- Using the skimmer strainer move around the balls ensuring even browning. Allow them to get colored then remove them and drain on a paper towel.
- Once the balls are all done frying, and they have cooled a little, add them to the simple syrup and leave them to soak 30min to 24hours. Serve with or without syrup warm or room temp. Enjoy!
