Simple Maida Sweet

This is a very simple yet tasty snack. 

All Purpose flour (Maida) - 2 cups
Salt - to taste
Water - to knead
Add salt to the flour and adding enough water, knead the flour into a chapati dough. Make small balls out of it and roll it out into thin rotis.
Cut each roti into small squares 2cm wide. Bring opposite corners of the square together and press firmly. Now bring up the other 2 corners and fold over to form the shape of a conch. Repeat for all the pieces until the dough is used up.
Heat oil in a deep pan and fry the pieces until golden brown. Remove with slotted spoon and drain on kitchen towels. Repeat for all prepared pieces.
Sugar - 1 cup
Water - 1 cup
In a thick bottom vessel, add 1 cup water and 1 cup sugar. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and keep stirring until  the mixture thickens to a consistency where it will not dissolve if you pour a drop in little water. This is the right consistency.
Pour this sugar syrup over the fried pieces and immediately mix everything together. Let cool and store in airtight container.
