1 egg
250 g rice flour
coconut milk
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp turmeric
oil to deep fry

Special Equipment: Kokis Mould on a Rod


  1. Beat  the egg. Sieve the flour into a bowl and add the egg, turmeric, salt and sufficient coconut milk to make a thick batter. (The aim is to have a thin coat that will form when you dip the Kokis mould into the batter and fry.)
  2. Heat the oil and when bubbling hold the Kokis mould in the oil until the mould is hot. Carefully dip the mould into the batter, taking care not to submerge it completely.
  3. Remove from the batter and place into hot oil where the batter should separate from the mould but still retain its shape as it deep fries. If the batter sticks it may need to be eased from the mould with a wooden tooth-pick. Repeat the process until all the batter is used.
