Oil for frying
Mix wheat starch and rose water in a bowl until forms a paste.
Add eggs and beat until fully combined.

Heat oil in a sauce pan or a deep pan until bubbles form around a toothpick touching the bottom of the pan.
Heat rosette iron by letting it stay in hot oil for 10-15 seconds.
Lift the iron, shake off the excess oil and immediately dip it into batter just that the edge of the iron is even with the surface of the batter. Then dip the iron into hot oil. Let the rosettes puff and then take the iron out of oil.
