Method

 
Mix condense, milk, cardamom, ghee and chick-pea flour into a paste.

Place ingredients for the syrup into a large heavy based pot and bring to a boil, and lower heat and allow syrup to simmer.

Sift flour and baking powder into a dish and gradually add sifted flour mixture to the condense milk mixture to make a soft dough.

Grease hands well and shape dough into little sausages, and deep fry on medium heat until cooked.

Remove from oil and place in simmering syrup and allow to soak.

Remove from syrup and roll in coconut if desired, and allow to cool before serving or storing.
