They are somewhat round in shape, a bit oily, sweet and gooey on the inside. Kaimatis are one of the most enjoyed delicacies eaten by the Muslim community and part of the eastern side of the country. Talk about a delightful snack, that cannot miss on their table during Ramadhan.

  1. Cover the batter and store in the fridge for 1 hr  to puff up.

FYI:

I decided I omitted the syrup part, but you could definitely make it. {Optional}.

    3. Pre- heat enough oil into a pan or sufuria {for the deep frying}. Make sure its hot enough before adding in the dumplings.

    4. Using either an ice-cream scoop or soup spoon, scoop the batter and gently pour in the batter to the hot oil and let it fry till golden brown. Avoid over crowding them in the oil, since the temperature would fall.

   5. Have lots of serviettes to help the “Kaimatis” drain the excess oil}.

   6. You can serve immediately, or you can totally add your toppings. I had “Nutella and chocolate syrup.
