  • some oil to fry


  • select the right bowl to make a simple batter
  • leaving the sugar and oil aside, mix all the ingredients and mix well
  • pick a suitable frying pan and pour some oil in
  • after the oil heats up, lower the heat
  • pour 2 spoonfuls of the batter and fry on both sides

preparation of the syrup

  • bring to a boil the sugar with 250ml (half a cup) of water for 5 minutes or until the syrup is slightly thickened
