    Kalkals are a Christmas delicacy in Goa and my Christian friends make different variations of it. I love every single kind and here my simple version.



    1. Mix butter and powdered sugar together until well combined.
    2. Add vanilla extract, salt and eaten egg white. Combine well.
    3. Add flour and knead into a a little more than soft dough. Note: dough should neither be too soft nor too stiff
    4. Divide dough into 4 parts and add a drop 4 different food color. Knead again to combine. Note: Colors are optional. You may make kalkal without any color
    5. Make small marble sized balls out of the dough.
    6. Press each ball on the outer side of a fork and gently roll it like a mat.
    7. Once you've rolled all of the dough, drop them in batches in medium hot oil. Note: Make sure oil is not too hot, if not you run the risk of oil overflowing
