  9. Simmer until a sticky syrup develops, about 5 minutes.

  11. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-low until it reaches 350°F (180°C).
  12. Squeeze the batter into the hot oil, making small circular spiral shapes.
  13. Increase the heat to medium-high.
  14. Fry the dough shapes until they are crispy on both sides, about 5 minutes.
  15. Remove and immediately dip in the syrup mixture.
  16. Serve with rabri, if desired.
  17. Enjoy!
