Venna Vundalu - Butter balls


Ingredients :


Maida : 1 cup
Rice flour : 1/4 cup
Sugar : 1 cup
Oil for deep frying
Butter : 25 gms
A pinch of cooking soda



Method :


Mix maida with rice flour Butter & cooking soda. Add warm water, make a soft dough. Cover it with a wet cloth and set aside for 1hour. Shape the dough into small balls. Cover the dough balls with a wet cloth for 5 mins. Heat the oil for deep frying. Fry them on low flame till light brown in color. Let it cool completely. Mix the sugar and water. The amount of water should be just enough to soak the sugar. Make a thick sugar syrup of 3 thread consistency . To test the sugar syrup, place a drop on the plate. The drop should remain as it is i.e., it should not spread. Remove from the flame and add all the deep fried balls in the sugar syrup and mix very fast. Stir.. Stir.. Stir.. and continue to stir for a few mins.. Let them cool completely... Ready to Serve.. :)
