Method

Place water, sugar, saffron and the 5ml ghee in a medium size pot and bring to a boil before, lowering the heat and allowing it to simmer

The syrup should be kept warm all the time and ensure that it does not thicken

Sift dry ingredients into a bowl and mix the 10ml ghee and food colour with the water and add this to the flour mixture to form a smooth batter

Press through a large holed colander-into hot oil and fry them till golden in colour and remove with a slotted spoon

Place in hot syrup-till the syrup is absorbed about 25minutes, once cool enough to handle mould them into-small balls

Roll in slivered almonds, edible glitter and allow to set overnight before serving.
