Step 2

Cover the dough with a damp cloth and leave in the kitchen counter for around 15-30 mts.

Dust the kitchen counter with enough flour.

Step 4

Divide the dough into equal parts and start working on one ball at a time, meanwhile leaving the other balls under the cloth.

Step 5

Flatten the dough ball into a rectangle shape using a rolling pin and cut out equal strands of ribbons.

Now make slanted cuts in one ribbon voila you got diamond shaped cuts.

Step 7

Repeat the steps for rest of the leftover dough balls.

Step 8

Heat a wok with enough oil and fry the cuts out (few at a time).
