How to make Khapse (Sherpa pastry)

Khapse is a deep fried pastry prepared most commonly at Losar, but also sometimes on other special occasions like (Sherpa wedding). There are a whole bunch of different kind of Khapse. I am using mango powder in my recipe as it gives a natural color and little bit sweetness. I have also used coffee mate which is like cream powder and makes the Khapse all the more tasty.
