Dec. 17, 2015

This is a traditional favourite made by Christians in India by rolling the dough on a comb or fork to get a spring like shape during the holiday season. Its origins can be traced to Portugal, although this recipe has totally evolved. Every family has their own recipe, some use coconut milk and others use semolina. This recipe is a tribute to my late aunt Celie Coutinho who passed away recently.


All purpose flour 900 Gram (1 lb 15 oz)
Egg yolks 2
Sugar 1 3/4 Cup (28 tbs)
Milk 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Salt 1 Pinch
Melted ghee 175 Milliliter
Oil 2 Cup (32 tbs) (for deep frying)



In an electric mixer, combine egg yolk, sugar, milk and beat well.

Add salt and flour (in batches) and mix well.

Slowly drip in ghee and mix again.

Transfer to a bowl, cover with cling wrap and refrigerate until firm.

Once firm, divide into balls and flatten the dough ball.

Comb and seal as shown in the video.

Deep fry in hot oil until golden brown. Drain excess oil using paper towels


Serve and enjoy!
