Another munchies which is as tasty and has a biscuit type texture is Kulkuls. I’m unaware of it came to be called Kulkuls. In Hindi Kul means tomorrow so I think some kid ate it in a jiffy and wanted some more. His mother must have pacified him saying she would make more Kul. Now this promise wasn’t kept and the child’s kept crying Kulkul. 😂 Now that’s just my understanding on Kulkul.
So without much ado let’s get to the recipe:
- 2 cups Maida/All purpose flour
- 1/2 cup ghee/clarified butter melted
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup rava/semolina
- 1/2 cup sugar
- Hot water as required
- A clean fork to make the grooves
Method: Mix all the ingredients and knead to form a dough. Cover with a damp cloth and keep aside for about an hour. After an hour form into small balls. Press firmly the ball behind the back of a fork. Turn and roll. Press the edge to close firmly like a shell/conch type. Keep on an absorbant paper and make an entire batch.
Heat the oil on slow fire and fry till golden brown. Strain and remove on an absorbent paper. When cool store in an airtight container.
Note: 1. Since my boys were also helping this became more like conch shells.
2. Recipe: Courtsey my late mum. May her soul rest in peace. Amen.
3. If you want to make a vegetarian version replace it with warm milk.
