Kormolas are sweet, crispy and flaky flower bud or conch shell shaped, deep-fried Goan cookies. An important sweet in the Kuswar- Goan Christmas platter distributed to friends and family, they are a delightful snack to much on.
Kormolas, a cousin of Shankarpali, uses the same dough as I mentioned in my previous post. The only difference is the shape. Shankarpali is diamond shaped. To make kormolas, you take it a step further after making the diamond shapes. You pinch the opposite end of the diamond-shaped cutouts to make a pattern that resembles a flower shape or a conch shell, as you perceive it! They look pretty, regardless.
