Tips for Perfect Crispy Tikya:
  1. The ratio of the flour, semolina, and ghee should be on accurate measurement
  2. Kneading tikiya dough should be hard and tight
  3. Otherwise, tikiya turns soggy and soft
  4. After frying tikiya will look so soft they take a few minutes to turn in a crispy texture
  5. This is the reason why keep them on a paper towel immediately after frying and then leave them in an airy place by covering a kitchen napkin
  6. Don’t be hasty to store them until they get completely cooled down
