Kul Kuls are my favorite sweet treat over the holidays. It’s fair to say that it doesn’t feel quite like Christmas, unless I make a batch of these crispy deep fried dough springs. This recipe is adapted from my Aunty Celie’s recipe that I prepared a few years ago. The recipe is pretty much the same,

I just added some semolina for extra crispiness. This special dough is made with flour, eggs, milk, sugar and the star ingredient – melted ghee. This turns the dough into a golden hue. The dough is then flattened and rolled on a comb to create a spring like look.
