As reqired

1. Sieve the maida, salt and cooking soda together.
2. In a wide bowl, mix the sugar  and ¼ cup of water. Mix them well and keep it aside for 5 mins or till the sugar dissolves in the water. 
3. Now add the flour mixture and cardamom powder. Mix them with your fingers. Then add water slowly and knead gently to make a smooth dough like chappathi dough.
4. Cover the dough for 30 – 45 mins.
5. Now, make lemon sized balls from the dough and keep it aside.
6.Heat the oil in a pan, add the balls one by one slowly. Keep the flame in between sim and medium. Slowly the balls will rise and open by itself. [That’s why this is called viri cake]  Flip them using the ladle for uniform cooking and cook till they become  golden in color.
7. Take them it out from the oil and drain the excess oil using tissue paper.
Cool it completely and store it in an air tight container.

Now viri cake is ready to eat with tea. Store this cake for 4-5 days at room temperature for long use.

1. Use powdered sugar also but measure the sugar amount before powdering  the sugar.

2. Oil temperature is very very important.  Should not increase or decrease the flame.
