Eggless Baked Kalkal

My mom used to make this kalkal on every year in Christmas back home. She knead the dough and me and my sister and dad, sit down , took forks and make kalkal and she fry it. I didn't know this is a very famous Goan snack for Christmas, I just thought it's regular Christian tradition to make this during festival. But being Gujju, I still don't know how mom knew this , I have to asked her that. Maybe from her colleagues I guess. After coming to US, I never made it but this year, looking everyone making it and posting it I was craving for that sweet yummy cookie kinda taste but again was not in a mood to fry it. Was very sure that no matter what and how it may go I will baked this, what bad thing happen, it has flour , sugar , it will be cookie anyway. So when I am done making snickerdoodle cookie , I started making my dough for this. I added my coconut oil in this instead of regular oil or butter and I had leftover cinnamon sugar from cookies, So I roll it kalkal in that and baked it. Result you might say? yummy , crunchy delicious baked kalkal. I totally forgot about the taste , so I went back to past 17 years ago when last time I had this. Now Christmas or not, I will make this any time.

Ingredients : 

1 cup All Purpose flour
4 tbsp. coconut oil , melted , you can use butter, oil anything.
1/2 cup sugar
Milk as needed

optional to roll in cinnamon sugar mixture, but that's the reason I took less sugar in dough, but if you are not using this mixture , add little bit more sugar.


Preheat the oven at 375F.
In a bowl, add flour , coconut oil, sugar and make a dough.
If its less oil , add warm milk little by little so form a dough.
Take fork, take a small ball from dough, put it on fork lines, press it hard and then fold it form one side.
roll it in cinnamon sugar mixture and put in on baking dish line with parchment paper.

Bake it for 25-30 minutes or till flour changes the color.
Take it out and let it cool.
Store in in airtight container and enjoy it with family and friends on this joyous festival.

Have a Very Happy New Year and Prosperous 2015
