Sweet Shells / Teepi Gavvalu

We need:

Maida/ All purpose flour 2 cups
Sugar 1 cup
Salt pinch
Butter 3sps
Oil for deep frying


Melt butter and add to maida.
Also add salt and mix well.
Now add water to make stiff dough.
Keep aside for 5 minutes.
Heat oil for deep frying.
Now make very small balls from the maida dough.
Take a fork and place on the plate or on kitchen platform.
Take a ball of maida and press along the fork to make as shells.
You can see the fork marks on the shells now.
Deep fry these shells till golden brown.
In another pan add sugar and 1/3 cup of water.
Once you see bubbles in the syrup add the fried shells and rest them for 15 minutes.
Remove and let them cool.
Sweet shells are ready to serve.
