    Nisa's Note:

    Whilst I was staying in Yemen I became acquainted with a wonderful Thailandese lady who lived in Saudi. She used to make these treats often for an evening snack, served along some strong cardamom tea...a classic arab treat. If done correctly, the 'donuts' should not absorb too much of the sugar and have a lovely sticky coating on the outside. Best eaten immediately!
