Grind the chopped strawberries and sugar to a smooth puree and set aside.

Add poppy seeds and strawberry puree to the flour and knead it into a firm dough.
Add little more flour or water to form a firm dough. Cover the dough and set aside for 30 minutes
Heat oil in a pan for deep frying.
Divide the dough into round balls. Dust the work surface with little flour and roll each ball into a little thick circle.
Cut the rolled dough square or diamond pieces using a knife.
Gently drop the pieces in the hot oil.
Deep fry them on a low – medium flame until they are golden brown color, turn oven to fry on both sides evenly.
Drain them on a paper towel and let them cool completely.
Store them in an airtight container.
If you want to bake them instead of frying, preheat the oven to 180 degrees C.
Roll the dough into a little circle and cut into desired shapes.
Prick the pieces with a fork.
Place the pieces on a greased baking tray and bake at 180 degrees C for 15 minutes or until the edges are golden brown.
Let them cool completely and store in an airtight container.
Frying them over low-medium flame will make them crispy.
