Place all the dry dough ingredients in an electric mixer; then gradually add the water while continuing to blend. Mix the dough for 10 minutes in order to obtain an elastic piece of dough, then place it in a bowl and cover it with nylon sheet. Leave it to rise in a warm place for half an hour until doubled.Open the nylon sheet and stir the dough lightly with a plastic cake spatula for a few seconds only. Re-cover the dough and leave it in a warm place for another 15 minutes.
Roll out and cut into small circles with a teacup, fill with peanut butter and cream, then roll into balls and fry in oil.
For decoration, after adding the syrup, add crushed pistachios, dried edible flowers, or roasted Goody vermicelli and sprinkle a little ground cardamom.
