Soak the yeast in warm water for 5 minutes. In another bowl, add the flour, salt, cinnamon powder, cardamom powder, oil, egg, coconut milk, powdered white sugar, and the yeast mixture.

Knead everything into a slightly non-sticky dough, add more flour if required.

Place the dough in a greased bowl and let it rest for an hour or until the dough is double its original volume. Heat the oil for frying. Now, slightly roll the dough in a circle of about ½ inch thickness.

Cut the dough into triangles and fry them on low to medium flame on both sides until brown in color. Sprinkle with some icing sugar, serve, and enjoy!


Make sure that the dough is kneaded only until everything comes together. Add more flour, if required, to gather the dough into slightly non-sticky in consistency.
