Ingredients

  • SYRUP

  • 1,125kg white sugar
  • 1L (4 cups) water
  • 8 green cardamom pods
  • 8 cloves
  • 2 star anise
  • 15ml (1 tbsp) rose water
  • DOUGHNUTS

  • 450g dried milk powder
  • 150g cake flour
  • 2,5ml (½ tsp) bicarbonate of soda
  • 180ml (¾ cup) fresh whipping cream
  • 125ml (½ cup) grapeseed oil, to fry
  • desiccated coconut, to coat

Instructions

1

For the syrup, mix together all the ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil, while stirring, until you obtain a thick syrupy liquid, 15 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.

2

For the doughnuts, combine all the dry ingredients in a bowl. Add the cream and mix together with a spoon or by hand until it becomes a thick dough.

3

Preheat the oil in a deep-fryer to 180°C. Alternatively you can use a thick-based, deep saucepan. Scoop out small quantities of the batter, and deep-fry in the oil until golden brown, about 7 minutes. Drain on paper towel.

4

Pour the syrup over the doughnuts and roll in the coconut to coat. Serve the remaining syrup as a side.
