Ingredients to make Kulkuls

  • all purpose flour-1 1/2cup
  • Granulated -1/4cuo
  • Powdered sugar-1/2cup
  • butter-1/2cup
  • baking soda-1/8 tsp
  • Vannla essence-1/4 tsp
  • Pinch of salt
  • water -1/4 cup
  • oil for fry

How to make Kulkuls

  1. In a bowl mix flour, salt and baking soda such that everything is mixed well
  2. In a saucepan melt butter switch off the gas and add the sugar and let it dissolve once it comes to room temperature
  3. you can start adding the butter to the flour mix and using both hands and rub the flour gently to form crumbs and keep doing this for 2-3 minutes until all the flour looks crumbly
  4. Now add water to help form a firm dough, keep kneading for 2-3 minutes set aside for 15 minutes ( I did not cover the dough)
  5. Take a small portion of he dough. Roll it up with the help of a fork and shape like shells. Make sure you properly close the shell else while frying it will open up. You can also dip your finger in water and seal the shell inside
  6. Repeat the same with the remaining dough
  7. Now heat oil in a large deep vessel, you can add a pinch of dough in the oil and it has to sizzle and change the colour to golden brown (make sure the heat is in medium).
  8. To make the frying simple and help the curls hold its shape I place them on the slotted spoon and immersed them in oil. It will look like the kulkuls are all joined together once they are fried they will separate
  9. Now using the same slotted spoon remove the kulkuls and drain them in paper towels.
  10. Now sprinkle the powdered sugar on the warm kukuls and toss them gently
  11. Serve

My Tip:

We can bake kulkuls instead of frying

To make the kulkuls,take a small amount of the kneaded flour,flatten it on the back of a fork and roll it. Do this with all of the flour and then deep fry them till all the dough is finished. Very poor directions given in the recipe.
