- Semolina (roasted rava) (1 cup)
- Refined wheat flour (maida) (1 cup)
- Vegetable oil (2 tsp)
- Cumin seeds (jeera) (1/2 tsp)
- Sesame seeds (til) (1/2 tsp)
- Salt (a pinch)
- Sugar (3 tsp)
- Lemon juice (2 tsp)

- In a bowl, add therava, maida, vegetable oil, jeera, til and salt. Mix well.
- Knead into a smooth soft dough using enough water and keep aside for 10 minutes.
- Divide the dough into two equal parts. Roll the dough into round shapes and with a knife cut them into stripes.
- Now, heat the coconut oil in a kadhai and deep fry the sticks. Fry till they turn brown and stop sizzling.
- Drain the excess oil. Add lemon juice and mix well.
- In a pan, heat the sugar in 1/2 cup of water. Let it boil till the sugar melts completely.
