  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup     sugar
  • 2 cups    flour
  • 1/4 cup   cornstarch
  • 3/4 cups  milk or water
  • sesame seeds
You will need a chinese pretzel iron or a swedish rosette iron.

Cooking Process:

Mix all ingredients together but save out some sesame seeds. Add more sesame seeds to the batter as you go on. Heat oil, heat the pretzel iron in the oil, then dip into the batter. DO NOT let the batter go over the top of the iron. If you can't find a Chinese pretzel iron, get a Swedish rosette iron, they are smaller but work well & are more easily found.
