Christmas is here and time to rejoice. There’s a song and joy everywhere, elaborate preparations are being made and the internet is flooded with cake recipes. Oh! so many I am seeing each day, there is really no dearth for tasty dishes isn’t it? It’s been sometime I posted anything related to Christmas after the cookie recipe, so here I am with a tasty Goan sweet.

I am so excited, I have some good news to share with you. Some of you must be knowing that I love to write poems, I now have my e-book of poems, ” Soulful Melodies”. It is available on Amazon.

As part of Christmas and New Year celebrations, I am offering all my recipes books to you at a discount. They are at $2 only !

I have seen many of friends make elaborate dishes, such beautiful flower shaped sweets, cakes and cookies. Today, I have Kul Kul or Kal Kal as it is called. 

Kul kul is a sweet from Goan cuisine. Coconut milk or milk is often used to mix the dough. But, I have used water here. A few tips, before I proceed to the recipe.

  • Mix the ghee well with the flour. Rub it well numerous times before you add other ingredients.
  • Add water little at a time, you need a stiff dough.
  • A little oil may be applied on the dough and then kept covered aside.
  • Making of kul kul needs time and patience.

Lets start making Kul Kul

Ingredients: Measurement used: 1 cup =250 ml

  • 1.25 cup All Purpose Flour
  • 4 tablespoon ghee
  • 1/4 cup semolina
  • 1/4 cup castor sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt 
  • water
  • oil for frying


Kul Kul / Goan Christmas Sweet
  • Take all purpose flour in a bowl, add ghee to it and mix it well with fingers, for three to four minutes.
  • Add sugar, salt and semolina to it. Again mix it.
  • Add a little water and knead to a stiff dough.
  • Cover and keep it aside for ten minutes.
  • You need a fork to give shape to kul kul. Take a marble size ball, press it on the fork and roll it into the shape of a cone. Seal the back end. Keep it on a plate and cover with a thin cloth, repeat for the rest of the dough.
  • Heat oil in a pan, add a batch of kul kul to deep fry, once they are golden in colour remove on an absorbent paper.
  • Repeat for the rest of the dough.
