BISMILLAH HIR RAHMAN NIR RAHEEM
Flour - 250 gms
Oil - 1/2 cup
Curd - 1/2 cup
Baking soda - 1/2 tsp
Oil - for deep frying
For the Syrup
Sugar - 2 1/2 cups
Water - 3 cups
Mix flour and baking soda. Add curd and oil and prepare a soft dough. Knead it till smooth. Divide into 25 equal portions. Roll each portion into an oblong roll.
Heat oil and fry the toshas on medium flame till golden brown.
Add water and sugar, and bring it to a boil in a pan. When the syrup becomes sticky, add the fried toshas and let them stay in the syrup for 5 minutes. Remove the toshas onto a plate.
Boil the syrup until it reaches one-third consistency. Drop the toshas again in hot syrup and let them soak for another 5 minutes. Line a tray with foil and place the toshas on it.
Again boil the syrup until it becomes very thick. With a spoon, pour the syrup onto the toshas evenly. Garnish it with sliced pistas. Allow it to dry.
Toshas cannot be handled until completely dry. Once dry, the syrup will form a coating on them, looking shiny.
Remove from tray and flip it to dry the other side. When completely dry, serve or store in an airtight jar.
