3 1/2 cups peeled apple wedges
oil for deep-frying

For The Batter
3 tbsp plain flour (maida)
3 tbsp cornflour

For The Syrup
1/4 cup oil
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup honey
2 tbsp sesame seeds (til)

For the batter

  1. Combine the plain flour and cornflour along with 5 tbsp of water in a bowl, mix well and keep aside for 10 to 15 minutes.

For the syrup

  1. Heat the oil in a broad non-stick pan, add the sugar and cook on a medium flame for 10 to 12 minutes, until the sugar dissolves and caramelizes lightly, while stirring continuously.
  2. Add the honey and sesame seeds, mix well and cook for another 2 to 3 minutes. Keep warm.

How to proceed

  1. Heat the oil in a kadhai, dip a few apple wedges in the batter at a time and deep-fry in oil till they turn golden brown in colour from all the sides.
  2. Pierce each apple fritter with a toothpick and place on a plate.
  3. Pour the warm syrup in one bowl and pour ice-cold water in another bowl.
  4. Dip each fritter immediately in the warm syrup and then in ice-cold water. This will cause the syrup coating to harden so the fritters will be crisp and crackling on the outside surface like a toffee.
  5. Serve immediately.

Handy tip:

  1. Prepare the syrup as close to serving time as possible. It only takes a few minutes and the results will be much better.
