|Maida : 2 cups||
Unsalted butter :1 tbsp
Sugar : 4 tbsp
|Coconut milk: of ½ coconut||Soda powder : a pinch||
Salt : according to taste
Sieve the maida flour and transfer it to a clean thin cotton cloth, tie it and place it in a container.
Pour about two inch deep water in a thondore (or in a closed vessel). Keep the cloth bundle inside the thondore and steam cook it for 10 minutes. Once done, take the maida bundle out and leave it to cool to room temperature.
The steamed maida will be in a hard lump, crush the it with your hands or beat the bundle of the steamed maida on the kitchen platform and then sieve it.
Mix maida, salt, sugar and soda powder in a bowl. Knead all the ingredients with butter adding coconut milk with required quantity little by little. Cover the dough with a damp cloth so that it does not dry.
Apply ghee (or butter) on your palms, make small marble sized balls with the dough pressing them between your palms. Flatten the ball on the back of the greased fork or comb and gently roll it to form a small cylinder shell shaped kulkul.
Then place the kulkul on a greased platter. Repeat the same way for rest of the dough.
Heat oil in a deep heavy bottomed pan on a medium flame. When hot, fry the kulkuls in it ,making sure to turn often till they are a light golden brown in colour. Do not fry the kulkul on high flame the kulkuls will turn brown faster but the centres will remain soft and uncooked.
Remove and place in a colander to drain then set aside on paper kitchen towel. Leave it to cool and transfer kulkuls to an airtight container.
If you prefer, you may sugar coats them as below:
To prepare sugar syrup, take 1 cup of sugar, add ¼ cup water and heat it on a low flame. When the sugar melts and the syrup thickens, slowly drop the kulkuls in it roll them and and remove them quickly. Allow the sugar coated kulkuls cool down and store them in a airtight container.
