  10. Flip the kawum over and let it cook until the other side turns golden brown as well.
  11. Use a spoon to remove the kawum from the oil and let it drain on a paper towel.
  12. Repeat the process until all the batter has been used.
  13. Serve the kawum while they are still warm and crispy.

Note: You can adjust the amount of water in the batter to achieve the desired consistency. The consistency of the batter can affect the texture of the kawum.
