Sweet DumplingLuqaimat Maker
It seems like you’re looking for a recipe or information related to making Sweet Dumplings or Luqaimat. Luqaimat is a popular Middle Eastern dessert, often enjoyed during special occasions or festivals. Here’s a simple recipe for making Luqaimat:
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon yeast
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups warm water
Oil for frying
For the syrup:
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon rose water or orange blossom water (optional)
In a bowl, mix the warm water, sugar, and yeast. Allow it to sit for about 5-10 minutes until it becomes frothy.
In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt.
Pour the yeast mixture into the dry ingredients and mix well until you get a smooth batter. Cover the bowl with a kitchen towel and let it rest in a warm place for at least 1 hour or until it doubles in size.
Heat oil in a deep fryer or a heavy-bottomed pan to 350°F (175°C).
Wet your hands with water to prevent the batter from sticking. Take small portions of the batter and drop them into the hot oil. Fry until they turn golden brown, turning them to ensure even cooking.
Remove the fried dumplings (Luqaimat) using a slotted spoon and place them on a paper towel to absorb excess oil.
In a separate saucepan, prepare the syrup by combining sugar, water, and lemon juice. Bring it to a boil and let it simmer for a few minutes until it thickens slightly. Add rose water or orange blossom water if desired.
Dip the fried dumplings into the syrup, ensuring they are coated evenly. You can also drizzle some syrup over the dumplings.
Serve the Sweet Dumplings (Luqaimat) warm and enjoy!
