Over the last few months I seem to have developed a major sweet tooth. I crave one particular sweet that I just have to have! Couple of weeks ago it was the amazing Rabdi (Rabri) from Copper Chimney in Chennai and after that were After Eights. By then I had already moved to Bangalore and it took me days to find the store that sells them. The cravings seem to come and go as they please.
My latest craving has been Darsaan from a restaurant near my previous office in Chennai. Since there was no way I would go all the way to another city just to have a sweet I decided to try and make it. It looked simple enough. My hunt for the Darsaan recipe began, and all the recipes were made out of phyllo wraps. I was in no mood to go hunting for them and decided to make that too.
So, here is attempt 1 of Darsaan. I hope you like it, my cousins sure did!
- Mix the all purpose flour with water and knead till it sets as one soft ball.
- Roll it with a rolling pin and cut into thin strips
- Deep fry the strips till they are golden brown and set them aside.
- Add the sugar and 2-3 teaspoons of water on to a pan and stir. Then add honey and continue stirring.
- Add the fried strips to the sugar honey mixture and mix well in the pan.
- Your Darsaan is ready! Serve hot with some Vanilla Ice Cream!
