In a bowl mix together flour, sugar, baking soda and cardamom powder.
In another bowl mix together milk, butter and curd.
Add the curd milk mixture to the flour and mix.
Add teaspoons of water until the dough comes together.
Cover and set aside for 30 minutes.
Heat oil in a pan.
When you drop a tiny ball of the dough, it should come to the top slowly, at this point it is good to add the cakes.
Immerse your hand in water and pinch a small ball out of the dough.
Slide it inside the oil carefully.
Repeat with four or five cakes depending upon the size of the pan.
Reduce flame to low and keep on stirring the cakes.
They will gradually turn brown and will start having cracks.
Once they are nicely browned, remove from oil and allow them to cool completely.
Enjoy with a cup of coffee..
