|Little Hearts shaped diamond cuts|
Diamond cuts are simple to prepare and can be stored in an air tight container for about a week. The above tastes even better with the infusion of orange juice in the syrup.
Flour - 1 cup
Water - 1/4 - 1/2 cup
salt - 2 pinch
powdered sugar - 2 tsp (optional)
butter - 1 tsp or beaten egg - 1 tbsp
Oil - to deep fry
ingredients for the orange syrup
1 small cup sugar
Use the same cup to measure the liquid - 1//4 part water + 1/4 part orange juice

Mix the flour with butter/egg, salt and powdered sugar. Make a dough by adding water little by little. It should be a tough dough otherwise, the diamond wont be crispy. Divide the dough into four portions. Roll each portion into a sheet using a rolling pin. Cut the sheets into 2 cm broad strip. Cut it across to form diamond shaped pieces. Fry it in oil until it turns light brown and crispy. Drain it.
To make the syrup, heat the sugar and the liquid together until it forms a soft string consistency.
Pour the syrup over the fried diamond cuts little by little and toss it to coat.
Though this is a diamond cuts, i used heart shaped cutter to make it look exciting.
