The following recipe is one of the flagship snacks from my grandma. This snack is prepared once a year – For the Purim feast. This is because it is delicious and also due to the fact it is somewhat of a calorie bomb. This snack is of course the highlight of the Purim desserts and despite the simple appearance - this is a real delicacy - crispy, sweet and light. The recipe is easy to make, but takes some time - so feel free to prepare other things simultaneously. The recipe is designed for a large number of guests – fitting for the feast of Purim – For a smaller group, use half the quantities of oil, water and flour. Also – this crunchy snack keeps well for several days (if it is kept in a closed box) so that you can prepare in advance if there is no time at Purim...Print Pin Rate
