Then add rose water to the sugar syrup. By adding cardamom seeds and rosewater, the syrup will become aromatic, the color of the liquid will become light golden due to the saffron fibers. When the sugar syrup gets ready add 2 tsp of lemon juice and stir it well before taking it off the stove.
  3. Meanwhile, check the batter for the rising of the yeast. If it is too thick, then add water little by little and make it medium thick again.
  4. Cover a plastic bag on glass, pour the mixture into it, make a cone of the bag, cut for the hole of 4 to 6 ml on its point. Instead of a plastic bag, you can take a plastic bottle to make the batter extractor by making a hole (4-6 ml) in its lid.
