Kokis (කොකිස්) Recipe

Kokis is a deep-fried, crispy Sri Lankan food made from rice flour and coconut milk. Although considered as a traditional Sri Lankan dish, it is believed to have come from the Dutch. This is an important dish when celebrating Sinhala and Tamil New Year and plays a major role in the festivities.

  • Rice flour 200g
  • Coconut Milk (thick) 3/4 cup
  • Egg (optional) 1
  • Turmeric Powder 1/2 TSP

Steps:

  • Mix the egg and the sugar together.
  • Add salt, turmeric powder and stir.
  • Add the rice flour with coconut milk and give a good stir.(Hand Works Best)
