You’ve been dreaming about kaimatis since your last trip down to the coast. These gooey dough balls coated with a mouth-tingling syrup will leave you ordering for more, the last bite better than the previous. What makes it more delightful is the ease of making it.

Chocolate Dipped Kaimatis

 Serves: 4  Prep Time:   Cooking Time: 


  • All-purpose flour 1 cup
  • Natural plain yoghurt ½ cup
  • Water ½ cup
  • Instant yeast 1 teaspoon
  • Sugar 1 teaspoon
  • Cinnamon powder 1 teaspoon
  • Syrup Ingredients
  • Sugar 1 cup
  • Water 1 cup
  • Ground cardamom 2 tablespoons
  • Lemon Grated (optional)


For the Syrup:

  1. In a saucepan, add sugar and water and boil. Lower the heat and add the grated lemon and cardamom then simmer for about 5-8 minutes. The syrup should coat a spoon when ready
  2. Remove from heat and set aside to cool completely

For the Kaimatis:

  1. Pour all the ingredients in a mixing bowl and stir till the batter becomes sticky.
  2. Cover the bowl and set aside for 1-2 hours to puff up.
  3. In a wok, heat 2 cups of vegetable oil and using a small spoon to scoop small portions, drop the dumplings in the hot oil and fry till golden brown.
  4. Drop in the ready dumplings in the syrup and coat them for one minute (the longer you leave them the more syrup they’ll absolve hence becoming very sweet).
  5. Coat them with melted chocolate.
