Sweet diamond cuts/Sweet tukdi

After Spicy tukdi,Shevo, Salted Tukdi,Cornflakes Mixture and many other Namkeens, today it is sweet tukdi prepared on my sons demand.I often prepare sweet biscuit tukdi but today I thought of trying a new recipe.This morning I saw the post on Sharmis passions and I thought it was the right recipe to try as it seemed very easy and the measurement was very pleasing.And the  tukdi’s came very crisp and tasty.This recipe is definitely a keeper.

Recipe adapted from:Sharmis passions

Maida(All purpose flour)-1 cup
Sugar-1/4 cup(minus 2 tbsp)(Powdered)
Ghee-2 tsp
Cardamom powder-1/8 tsp

Water-as much needed to knead the dough
Oil- to deep fry


  1. Take a mixing bowl and mix all the ingredients mentioned in the list except oil and water.
  2. Now add water little by little and knead it into a medium firm dough not too hard nor too soft.
  3. Close it with a lid and keep it aside for 15 minutes.
  4. Punch the dough once and make a ball double the size of the lemon or lemon sized balls.
  5. Roll it  into thin chapati’s using maida in between.
  6. Use a tukdi cutter/pizza cutter/knife and first cut it vertically.
