Loukomades / Lokma / Lukmait Al Kadi


Greek calls this fried donuts Loukomades , Turkish calls it Lokma while in Arab countries it is known as Lukmait al kadi .Tried it for the first time and came out super good alhamdulillah !!! Crunchy outside , soft inside just perfect for my aching sweet tooth in time of iftaar . 🙂

Ingredients :

For the Batter:

1 cup all purpose flour
2 tbl spoon powder milk
1/2 tea spoon instant yeast
2 tea spoon sugar
pinch of salt
3/4 th cup + 2 tbl spoon warm liquid milk

Sugar Syrup :

1 and 1/2 cup sugar
1 cup water
Rose water / Orange blossom water
2 cardamoms , 1 bay leaf
1 tea spoon lemon juice ( to prevent crystallization)

Other Ingredient:

Oil to fry

Procedure :

1. Make a batter using all the ingredients of batter. Pour the batter in a box and keep it in the warm place until fermented . It will take an hour or so .

2. Make a medium thick sugar syrup using the ingredients of the syrup . It must not be thin or too much thick . Correct consistency is important for the lokma .

3. Heat the oil , and put 1 spoonful of batter to the oil . Try to use round spoon to make the lokmas round as much as possible . Fry on medium-low flame until turns red and well fried .

4. Put immediately into slightly warm syrup . Keep it there 1 or 2 minutes . Take them out from the syrup and enjoy them warm !!!!
