Kul Kul is a traditional Goan sweet delicacy made during Christmas. This is normally made with maida, egg, coconut milk and sugar. I prepared this without egg and it really tastes good. Enjoy the delicious Kul Kul with your family and friends as a sweet treat during Christmas!

Discover a delectable Christmas sweet from India called Kulkuls! Made with maida, coconut milk, and sugar, this eggless version is simply delightful. Share the joy with loved ones!


  • 1 cup Maida

  • 2 tablespoons Rawa

  • 1 cup Sugar

  • 2 tablespoons Powdered sugar

  • Cooking Soda – a pinch

  • Salt – a pinch

  • Cardamom Powder – one or two pinches

  • 2 teaspoons Butter or Ghee

  • 1/2 cup Warm Milk – as required to knead the flour

  • Oil for deep frying


  • Combine maida (all-purpose flour), rawa (semolina), powdered sugar, butter, cooking soda, and a pinch of salt in a mixing bowl. Gradually add warm milk, just enough to form a soft dough. Let the dough rest for at least half an hour.
  • Pinch off small portions of the dough and roll them into gooseberry-sized balls.
  • Lightly grease the back of a fork. Take one dough ball at a time, flatten it slightly, and press it against the back of the fork. Gently peel it off and roll it to create a shell-shaped kul-kul. Repeat this process with the remaining dough.
  • Heat oil in a kadai over medium heat. Once hot, fry the kul-kuls in batches until they are crisp and golden brown. Ensure not to overcrowd the kadai.
  • In a separate thick-bottomed vessel, dissolve sugar in just enough water to cover it. Bring it to a boil and continue boiling until it reaches a one-string consistency. Stir in the cardamom powder, then turn off the heat.
  • Add the fried kul-kuls to the sugar syrup, tossing them gently to ensure they are evenly coated. Spread the coated kul-kuls on a plate and allow them to cool. As they cool, the sugar will crystallize, forming a sugary shell on each piece.
  • Once cooled, separate the kul-kuls and store them in an airtight container. Enjoy these sweet treats whenever you like!

  • Preparing for Christmas in large quantity may take more time and need other’s help. If you do not have time or help, then just make big chapatis from the dough and cut it into small squares and fry it. This is also called “Thukkada” (meaning Tiny Piece).

  2. Hi Kamala

    You have a very useful blog here. Thanks for sharing the recipes with us. 🙂 I have quick question.. In your intro, you mentioned coconut but I don’t see that in your ingredients or any usage in your preparation method..Am i missing something?? Please let me know.


    • Hi SK,

      I mentioned in the beginning that usually it is prepared with egg and coconut milk. But I have not used egg or coconut milk. Instead and I used butter and ordinary milk for kneading the flour.

  3. Hi kamala,
    Very interesting recipes. Thanks a lot . I can get watever I need in ur site. Really useful.

  4. Hi kamala madam,
    I tried your kulkul today it was nice, but it was not in a color like your picture, it was little bit brown, the taste was good. And i tried your oats receipe it was very nice, your receips are very easy to prepare. Thankyou indhu

    • Hi Indhu,

      May be due to sugar syrup. If you use thick sugar syrup, then the sugar cristalise and become white on the fried kulkuls. Anyway you got tasty kulkuls.
