  • Optional Method:- Mix sugar and water in a wide pan. Place it on heat and make sugar syrup of 2 strands. Remove it from heat and then dip the fried puries into it. Place the puries on a plate and allow it to cool down completely so sugar syrup gets stick to puries. ( Its optional method. Traditional method doesn’t require this step. I do cos at my home, they love to eat these puries even without adding milk.)
