Initial Preparation:

  1. In a bowl, add in the all-purpose flour, cardamom powder and baking soda. Mix well and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, beat the eggs using a wire whisk until frothy, add in the sugar and mix well.
  3. Add the flour mixture into this and mix well. Knead well until you get a smooth pliable dough. Keep it aside for 30 minutes to 1 hour.

Cut cake Preparation:

  1. Heat enough oil to deep fry the cake in a heavy bottomed deep pan on medium heat. Once the oil is hot, reduce the heat to low.
  2. Divide the dough into 3-4 equal portions. Shape each portion into a rectangular shape log. Then cut them into triangle shapes.(refer images)
  3. Make a deep cut on the base of these triangle shapes.(refer images)
  4. Place them in the hot oil as batches. Do not overcrowd.
  5. Deep fry them in low-medium heat until golden brown. Flip them in between to ensure uniform cooking. Make sure not to over fry the cake as it will become very hard to eat. (refer tips)
  6. Drain on a pan lined with kitchen tissue paper to remove excess oil.
  7. Cool completely and store in a dry air-tight container for up to 2-3 weeks and use as needed.


  • Make sure that oil is not too hot, then outside of the cake burns earlier and the inner dough will not be cooked.

Yield: makes about 35-40 cut cakes.
