Directions

To make the syrup:
In a small saucepan bring the sugar, water, and lemon juice to a boil over high heat, stirring to dissolve the sugar.

Reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, about 15 minutes or until the syrup reaches a temperature of 220°F on a candy thermometer.

Add the rose water and orange flower water.Remove from the heat and cool.

To prepare the fritters:
Place the eggs and yogurt in a large bowl and beat until well blended.

Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and baking soda. Add to yogurt mixture and blend well.

In a deep-fryer or heavy saucepan heat 4 inches of the oil over moderate heat.

Drop the dough mixture, a tablespoon at a time, into the hot oil, being careful not to crowd the pan. Fry the fritters until golden brown on all sides, turning frequently.

Remove from the oil with a perforated spoon and drain on paper towels. Dip the fritters in the syrup and mound on a platter.

Garnish with the nuts before serving.
