Kormola is a sweet and crispy snack prepared especially during Christmas in Goa. Kormolas are hand-shaped flower buds made with sweetened and flavored refined flour (aka maida), kneaded into a dough using milk. It is a tradition to prepare them every Christmas and share them with family, friends, and neighbors.

So, follow the directions below along with the images and prepare sweet and crispy kormola.

8. Bind the extra dough and use it to prepare another batch.

9. Pick a circle and roll it a little more.

10. Fold the circle and give it a Kormola shape.
