Baking Powder - ½ tsp

Sugar Powder - ¼ cup (50 grams)

Desi Ghee - 1 tbsp + 1 tsp

Milk - ¼ cup

Oil for Frying


Process of making Dough


In a bowl add 1 cup of all purpose flour, 4 coarsely ground cardamom, ¼ cup of sugar powder, ½ tsp of baking powder and 1 tbsp of ghee.  Mix them well and add little by little milk (boiled slightly warm) and knead a soft dough.  After kneading, add 1 tsp of ghee to it and knead it well, the dough should neither be too soft nor too hard.  Cover the dough and keep it for 20 minutes.


Process of assembling Kormolas


After the time is up, mash the dough well and make it soft.  Break this dough into 3 parts, then mash one part well.  Make a peda by making it round, then roll it thin.  Remember, while rolling, do not lift the whole, just rotate the board or wheel, because it shrinks on lifting.


After rolling it thinner than roti, cut it into rounds with a cookie cutter.  Mix the remaining dough in the rest of the portions.  Now roll a round lightly, then paste it by joining the two corners, now paste the remaining two corners by joining them on the other side.  By pressing both the corners well, make a tip while increasing it slightly in length and keep it on the plate.  Similarly, make all the rounds by rolling them lightly and sticking them at the corners.  All the kormolas will be assembled.


Process of frying Kormolas


Heat oil in a pan, oil should be medium hot and flame should be low-medium.  Put as many kormolas as possible in hot oil and let it fry for 1-2 minutes.  When they float up, fry them by turning them a little at a time till they turn golden brown and take them out.  Add the rest in the same way and fry, the kormolas will be ready after frying.  Serve them and enjoy their taste.




While making dough, all the ingredients have to be measured and the dough has to be slightly soft.

While assembling the kormalas, both the corners have to be pressed and pasted.

The temperature of the oil should be slightly less than medium while frying the kormolas.

When it cools down, you can store it in a container and eat it for 2 months.
