Christmas Kul Kul recipe | Goan sweet kulkuls with step by step pics and video recipe. pronounced as “kal kals” this is super simple, easy recipe that can be made in less than an hour. 

I heard from my friend that these will be made in huge batches and the whole family sits in to roll the kul kul. how nice it will be to engage everyone in something interesting.

This Kul Kul has a veg option as well. you can skip eggs and add extra butter/ghee instead. it is advisable to let the dough sit for at least 15 mins before shaping it. 

I found this recipe more or less similar to the kala kala that we make as Diwali sweets. just that we dont use eggs in it and also we caramelize the fried ones in sugar syrup. these kulkuls can also be done the same way instead of adding sugar while making dough.
