At Christmas time in India, my mother used to make Rosettes. The Rosette Iron can be purchased in most kitchen specialty stores (I have even seen them in grocery stores). They come with many attachments of various shapes and sizes. Some even have a muffin-like shape and you can make the batter spicy by substituting a small amount of salt for the sugar or adding spices for added flavour. These muffins can be filled with shrimp dips or pasta combinations. The irons usually come with a variety of recipes for you to try it!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Make the rosette iron hot by dipping it in hot oil.
  2. Dip iron in batter.
  3. Dip iron in hot oil again and in about 30 seconds, gently pry batter off the iron with a fork until it falls away from the iron into the hot oil.
  4. Fry until light golden brown.
  5. Remove from oil and drain on paper towel.
  6. When cool sprinkle with icing sugar.

Yummy. I remember my mom making these when I was a kid and was plesently surprised to find a rosette iron at a thrift store but no recipe. Yours was perfect - just like I remembered. We dusted most of them with powdered sugar but made a few with cinnamon/sugar sprinkled on top. Both were delicious. Thanks for bringing back a fond memory!

I had a friend from Kerala and she used to make something called Acchampam. This recipe is somewhat like them. Good, not acchamapam but close.
