Sweet cheese fritters



For the dough:-

  1. All purpose flour – 2 cups
  2. Instant yeast – 1 level tsp.
  3. Salt – 3/4 tsp.
  4. Egg – 1 medium
  5. Sugar – 1 tbsp.
  6. Philadelphia cream cheese spread – 200 grams or 1 cup
  7. Lukewarm water – as needed
  8. Oil for deep- frying

For the sugar syrup:-

  1. Sugar – 11/2cup
  2. Water – 1 cup
  3. Cardamom powder – 1/2 tsp
  4. Saffron strands – 1/4 tsp.


  1. Mix together the flour, salt, sugar, yeast and cream cheese. Add the egg & lukewarm water to make a really thick batter of dropping consistency (similar to undampori batter).
  2. Keep this batter covered in a warm place for 1.5 to 2 hours.
  3. Heat the oil for deep-frying. When it becomes really hot, lower heat to minimum and drop a teaspoonful of batter into the hot oil. The fritters would become almost double in size on frying. Fry the fritters on a medium heat till browned and crisp. Drain on paper towels and let them cool down to room temperature.
  4. For the syrup, combine sugar & water. Bring to a boil on high heat, stirring till the sugar dissolves completely. Add the powdered cardamom, saffron strands & cook till 2 string consistency is attained ( if you take a little syrup in between your fingers & move them apart 2 strings/ threads will be formed and you could make a soft ball). Switch off heat. Work fast at this point. Put the fritters into the syrup & mix well till coated.
  5. Garnish with silver warq and nuts.
  6. You could cut each fritter into half and fill them with jam or nutella.
