Meethe Sikke or Sweet Discs is a name that I’ve coined for this recipe which happened quite by accident! But the end result is a super-yummy, flaky, crispy and soft treat that I’m 100% sure will be liked by all! It is actually a combination of the malpua, anarase, shankarpali and paakaatle chirote!! Sometimes, experiments are disastrous…but sometimes, quite by accident you make something which is so supremely delicious, that you feel like patting yourself on the back for it! Wishing all a delicious and happy Diwali which is full of lip-smacking food. Make food, make memories!

- Boil 1 cup water along with the ghee and 1 cup sugar for 5-6 minutes, till the sugar melts completely. Let it cool down.

- Heat oil in a kadhai. Divide the dough into 22-24 parts. Roll out each one into a round disc.
- Deep fry till golden brown on both sides.
- Immerse the fried discs into the sugar syrup.
- The syrup will be absorbed by the discs after a while. The sugar will also crystallize on some.

I believe that food should look as good as it tastes, and vice-versa. Maybe this is because I am an artist and an advertising professional too! But my first brush ...Read more about this chef..
