The flaky Indian sweet of Sutarfeni is a shredded, roasted-rice-flour sweet which is blended with melted sugar to form a cotton candy-like texture and topped with almonds and pistachios.

Firstly, make a strand of sugar syrup and let it cool for a few hours. Next, take the shredded dough or phyllo pastry or Katafi, a little at a time, and cover it with a paper towel or damp cloth. Twirl them into small circles taking a few strands at a time. They can be arranged on a tray and covered with a damp cloth.

Next, the twirled Katafi is to be placed in a deep spoon with holes and deep-fried for 30 seconds, while making sure that it doesn’t brown. Now remove the fried circles and stack them up in piles and dip each circle thoroughly in the sugar syrup before holding it over the container to allow it to drain completely.

Now take the container you want to store your Sutarfeni in, place them and sprinkle them with pistachio powder. Enjoy this sweet!
