Coconut Mahamri


2 cups of Kentaste coconut flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cardamom powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup warm milk
1/2 cup warm water
1 egg
2 tbsp melted butter or oil
Oil for deep frying


1. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the Kentaste coconut flour, sugar, baking powder, cardamom powder, and salt.

2. In another bowl, whisk together the warm milk, warm water, egg, and melted butter or oil.

3. Gradually pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, stirring until well combined. You should have a soft and slightly sticky dough.

4. Cover the bowl with a clean towel and let the dough rest for about 30 minutes.

5. After the dough has rested, heat the oil in a deep fryer or heavy-bottomed pot to 350°F.

6. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out to about 1/2 inch thickness.

7. Cut the dough into small triangles or rectangles.

8. Gently lower the pieces of dough into the hot oil and fry until golden brown on both sides, turning as necessary.

9. Remove the fried Mahamri from the oil and place them on a paper towel-lined plate to drain off any excess oil.

10. Serve warm with tea or coffee.
