Cardamom pastries

2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cardamom ground
4 oz butter melted or sunflower oil
4 oz milk boil and cool
oil to fry
icing sugar garnish

Mix the flour, baking powder and cardamom. Then add butter or oil and make like a crumble. Pour milk and knead till the dough is smooth. Make walnut size balls. Then roll into a 3" log and shape it into a crescent.
Heat oil and deep fry till it is golden brown. Drain and toss the fried pastries in icing sugar.
