- 1/2 tsp Salt
- 2 tbsp Sugar
- 2 1/4 tsp Active dry yeast (1 packet)
- 2 cups All purpose flour

In a pan on medium flame, heat milk, butter, salt, and sugar until the butter has melted and sugar has dissolved. Let this come down to 110 degrees F.
Sprinkle yeast and let it rest until foamy.
Add flour in increments and knead to form a smooth dough.
Cover it and keep it aside for 30 minutes.
Heat oil in a pan on medium heat for frying.
Take around 2 inch balls from the dough and roll them into thin sheets.
Fry it on both sides on a medium flame for 2 minutes till it puffs up and becomes golden brown. Transfer it to a paper towel to absorb any excess oil.
In a bowl, mix cinnamon and sugar. Sprinkle it on warm fried elephant ears.
Elephant ears are ready. Serve warm and enjoy.
- When preparing the sprinkle, adjust the amount of cinnamon and sugar as per your taste.
- The amount of flour required may vary depending on weather conditions, the brand of flour, etc. So add flour in increments and knead till a smooth dough is formed.
