How to make the Darsaan Recipe
To make the Noodles
In a bowl take the all-purpose Flour, baking powder, and salt and rub well.
Add ghee, water to the flour and knead a soft dough. Let it rest covered for 20 minutes
Divide the dough in half. Dust the balls, roll each dough into a thin 9-inch circle using a rolling pin.
Using the pizza cutter, cut it into thin strips. Make sure the strips are thin as well, you can also prick with a fork so that they don't puff up and will not be crunchy.
Heat the oil in a Kadai, deep fry the strips on medium-low flame. Cook on both sides and remove to a kitchen towel once they are crispy on both sides.
For the honey sauce
In a saucepan, take water and sugar. Bring it to a boil.
Once the sugar syrup comes to a boil add honey and sesame seeds. Turn the flame off.
Make sure not to heat further as the sauce can thicken very fast.
Pour the sauce on the fried noodles when it's still warm. It can get sticky as it cools down. You can garnish with Slivered Almonds or nuts if you like.
If you are making in large quantity, you can make the strips ahead and store.
