Vettu cake/Fried cake

Vettu cake is one lovely snack found in all small thattukadas in kerala. I love making it at home. We cherish it with lots of school and college memories. It is my son's favourite too. Have it with hot steaming tea. :)


You need
  • All purpose flour - 1 cup
  • Baking powder - 1 tsp
  • Sugar - 1/4 cup
  • Egg - 1
  • Cardamom - 3 
  • Oil for deep frying

Method   
  • Powder sugar along with cardamom seeds well.
  • Sieve together maida and baking powder.
  • Beat egg
  • Mix together the maida, baking powder, sugar and cardamom.
  • Add beaten egg little by little until you get a perfect dough.
  • Keep aside for 10 minutes
  • Roll the dough into a long cylindrical shape and cut into small pieces as shown
  • Make a deep cross cut on each piece
  • Heat oil
  • Put the cut face of the dough down first into the oil.
  • Deep fry until golden brown.
