How to Make Meethay Ghoday - A Hyderabadi Special

  • Take the flour, salt, oil in a bowl.

  • Then knead again for few minutes until the dough turns smooth, firm and pliable.
  • Divide the dough into 3 equal-sized pieces, roll a piece as a ball between your palms.
  • Using a rolling pin, roll each ball into a disc.

  • Shape each square into a flower and continue until the dough gets finished.
  • Leave the flower-shaped dough on the tray for at least 6 hours or overnight.
  • Next day, heat oil for frying. Once the oil is hot, fry the dried flower shaped dough until they turn crispy.
  • In a heavy bottomed pan, take the milk, water and heat it, add the fried flowers and cook on simmer for 15 minutes until they turn soft.
  • Finally add the sugar and mix.
