Kac Kac/Somali Cookies

Somali Mandazis

These are the best mandazis I have ever come across, simple ingredients and so so so so (ok you get the message) simple to make. Thanks Fauzia’s Kitchen Fun for this fabulous recipe. Since I started making them my husband can’t have enough of them, until now his buddies (yeh he’ll carry to work too) are making indirect orders (tough chance guys).

The several times I have made them, I mixed the ingredients not as per the actual recipe, but according to how I liked them to turn out. They are moist and buttery, try them out.


1 cup flour; sifted
¼ tsp. salt
¼ tsp. baking powder
1/8 cup butter; melted (this is like 8 tsps)
½ cup sugar (8 tbsps, you can use as much or as less)
1 egg
1 ½ tsp. warm milk
oil for frying


1. In a bowl, gently blend the sifted flour, salt, and baking powder.
2. In a separate bowl, mix the butter, sugar, and egg.
3. Add the milk to the butter/sugar mixture and mix.

For step 2 & 3, I usually just add in the wet ingredients onto the dry ingredients instead of mixing them separately. I like when the dough is ready but the sugar granules have not yet melted, makes such crunchy but moist cookies, yummy! But you can try out the above steps and then try my step, see which one you like better.
4. Add mixture to the flour and knead until smooth dough is formed.
5. Cover with a damp towel and let rest in a warm spot for 30 minutes.
6. Roll out to ¼ inch thick piece.
7. Cut into shapes. Some people cut it into diamond shapes or squares.
8. Deep fry until golden brown.
9. Drain on paper towels.
