Kaamaranga is a fried dough pastry that’s soaked in sugar syrup. It’s similar to Tulumba, a dessert found in Iran and regional cuisines of the former Ottoman Empire. Without the sugar syrup it’s also similar to churros, which now we mostly associate with Mexican cuisine.
Maldivians call these Kaamaranga because they look like star fruit, which in Dhivehi is called Kaamaranga. Sometimes locals refer to it as Balaksham too.
