  • 1.5 cups All-Purpose Flour / Wheat Flour
  • 1/2 cup Chopped Strawberries heaped
  • 6 tbsp Sugar
  • 2 tsp Poppy Seeds
  • 3 tbsp Ghee / Oil
  • Oil for deep frying


  • Grind the chopped strawberries and sugar to a smooth puree and set aside.
  • Take the flour in a mixing bowl and add the slightly heated ghee to it.
  • Mix very well to get a breadcrumb-like consistency.
  • 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.
