Kul Kul .. Christmas Sweet

Kul kul are popular sweet made by East Indians and Goan Catholics during Christmas .They are delicious cookies which are fried ,they just melt in mouth .These stay well for month .There are two versions of kul kul one is this and the other is dipped in sugar syrup however this version has been my favourite since childhood.
I remember helping my aunts and mom to make this during Christmas .We all cousins use to sit till late night after dinner and together help to shape kul kuls.They are really very addictive.Do try this out.Kul kul combs are available easily at a very cheap cost  but if cant find this you could use a clean comb or a fork to shape it.

150 gms flour/maida
100 gms fine rava/semolina/sugee
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract/essence
6 0 gm ghee
60 gm  powdered sugar
milk or water to knead
oil + ghee to deep fry

Mix the ghee,powdered sugar egg,flour essence and knead to soft dough.
Cover the dough with cloth and let it rest for 2-3 hrs.this is done for the rava to swell up.
Divide the dough in three parts and add few drops of colour and knead well.
Make small balls and flatten the ball on the kulkul comb/fork.

Roll the dough to shape it as kul kul.
Press the ends slightly so that they seal and don't open while frying.

Heat ghee/oil or you may mix both in a kadhai .
Fry kul kul in small batches over slow fire.
Remove the kul kuls on kitchen towel to drain excess oil.
Let it cool completely before storing in air tight containers.
