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 cup all purpose flour
- 1/2 stick Butter room temperature
- 1 egg white beaten until fluffy
- 1/4 cup powdered sugar
- 1 pinch salt
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 4 different edible colors optional
- oil enough for deep frying
- Mix butter and powdered sugar together until well combined.
- Add vanilla extract, salt and eaten egg white. Combine well.
- Add flour and knead into a a little more than soft dough. Note: dough should neither be too soft nor too stiff
- 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
- Make small marble sized balls out of the dough.
- Press each ball on the outer side of a fork and gently roll it like a mat.
- 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
