  • Let the mixture cook on low heat. Keep stirring, until the mixture becomes thick.
  • Put off the flame and add cardamom and nutmeg powder into it and mix well.
  • Take a little portion of the dough and roll it out into a small puri.
  • Put the already prepared mixture into this puri and close it like an envelope.
  • Stick a clove at the centre, so that the latika does not open.
  • Repeat the process with the rest of the dough.
  • Take a big pan and heat enough ghee. Fry the latikas on medium flame till they turn golden brown. Keep the fried latikas aside.
  • To make the sugar syrup, take water in a bowl. Heat it by adding ½ cup of sugar.
  • Boil the syrup on low heat, till it reaches three-string consistency.
  • Remove the bowl of syrup from the stove and add the already prepared latikas in it. Take out the latikas after sometime and allow them to cool.
  • Enjoy the sweet Lavang Latikas.
