Kokis Recipe

Sinhala and Tamil New Year is around the corner. Kokis is a traditional sweet we prepare for every New Year. Kokis is a very popular and favourite snack among everyone in the awurudu season. If you do following steps correctly it’s not a difficult thing to prepare Kokis.


  • Rice flour – 200g
  • Coconut milk (Thick) – ¾
  • Egg – 01
  • Turmeric Powder – ½ tsp
  • Sugar – 1 ½ TBS
  • Salt – ½ TSP
  • Oil for deep frying


  • Mix the egg and sugar together.Add salt and turmeric powder in to the same mixture and stir well.
  • Add the rice flour with coconut milk and give a good stir. (Hand works best)
  • This batter should be a thick one.
  • Heat oil and when bubbling hold the kokis mould in the oil for few seconds until the mould get hot.
  • Carefully, dip the heated mould into the batter and place the mould again into the oil.
  • When you dip in the batter make sure you don’t submerge it completely. If you do so, it will be little difficult to remove from the mould.
  • Once the Kokis start to separate from the mould use a wooden toothpick to remove kokis from the mould and removed kokis needs to deep fry until golden brown.
  • Do the same with the remaining batter.
