  1. Combine all the ingredients in a deep bowl, mix well and knead into a soft dough, without using water.
  2. Cover it with a lid and keep it in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  3. Divide the dough into 2 equal portions.
  4. Place a plastic sheet on a clean dry surface and place a portion of the dough in the center, press it lightly and place another sheet of plastic over it.
  5. Roll the dough into a 200 mm. (8”) diameter thick circle using a rolling pin.
  6. Remove the plastic sheet from top and make 7 rounds of approx. 50 mm. (2”) in diameter with the help of a cookie cutter or a vati.
  7. Place these 7 rounds on a clean dry surface and make eyes using a straw and a smile using a spoon on each round.
  8. The dough remaining after cutting the rounds can be used to make 3 more smileys.
  9. Repeat steps 4 to 8 to make 10 more smileys with one more portion of the dough.
  10. Heat the oil in a deep non-stick pan and deep-fry the smileys, a few at time on a medium flame till they turn golden brown in colour from both the sides. Drain on absorbent paper.
  11. Serve immediately with tomato ketchup.
