    Interesting. There is South African dessert that is almost exactly like this. They're called koeksisters. The only difference is that koeksisters are braided into plaits.

    Koeksisters:

    wow!...is it hard or soft? shakarpaaraas are relatively hard.
    Life is NOT measured by the number of breaths we take but the moments that take our breath away!!!
    16 breaths a minute, 23040 a day...NO one knows which one will be their LAST!

      Koeksisters are a bit crunchy on the outside but soft on the inside. At a bakery-cafe in Cape Town, a baker told me that the secret to this is to chill the sugar syrup and get it as cold as possible and dip the koeksisters into it as quickly as possible after frying.

      On a similar note, other South African desserts:


      Melktert (Milk Tart)


      Malva Pudding


      Hertzoggies


      Peppermint Crisp Tart


      Vlaskywe (Custard Slice)

        Traditionally, Sugar and Milk was the typical meetha in Sindhi cuture or I may say that in rural culture of sub-continent.

        I was listening to this song by Abida Parveen penned by Shah Latif. This relates to story of Umar Marvi. Marvi was a poor girl from a village Malir in Thar and when she was abducted by the then ruler Umar Soomro, she kept on remembering her people, land, its seasons specially rainy days and then she rejects the delicious cuisine of the palace over the food that was consumed by her people (Maroo)

        She mentions 'Makhan Maakhi' and 'Khand Kheer - Sughar and Milk' as the food which is dear to her people.
        We should care for each other more than we care for ideas, or else we will end up killing each other.
