Ghotaab Recipe

Makes 4 Servings


medium eggs, two
yogurt, 100 grams
cooking oil, 100 grams
flour, 150 grams
baking powder, one teaspoon
almonds, 250 grams (0.55 lbs)
fine sugar, 150 grams
cardamom powder, one spoonful


Separate egg-yolks and mix well with baking powder, cooking oil and yogurt. Add flour gradually while stirring the mix. Pour the dough in a plastic bag and leave for 1-2 hours.

Peel and ground almonds. Mix well with sugar and cardamom powder. Spread some flour on a table-top. Make orange-sized balls from the dough. Flatten the ball on the table-top to a thickness of 0.5 cm using a roller.

Cut circles into the dough with a cup. Place some of the almond-sugar mix at the center of each circle. Bring the edges of the circle together and press to close completely.

Fry in pre-heated oil until colour changes. Drain the excess oil, then roll in fine sugar.
