Kakara Pitha

Yesterday I was watching some Cookery show on Indian Channel, then I came across some sweet dishes which are made in Orissa. Its was soo simple and looked soo yummy. As I was thinking what to cook for day 3 under stuffed food, this recipe looked interesting to me. So here I am with the Orissa sweet dish called " Kakara Pitha".

We need:

Grated coconut fresh 1cup
Sugar 1 cup
Sooji 1 cup
Oil for deep frying


Heat pan and add grated coconut and fry till golden brown.
Add 1/2 cup sugar and mix well. Add little water and cook will water evaporates.
Remove and let it cool.
In the same pan add 2 cups water, 1/2 cup sugar and bring it to boil.
Now simmer the flame and add sooji mixing slowly as u do for making upma.
Cook on medium flame and let it cool.
Heat pan and add oil for deep frying.
Now apply some Ghee to your hands and take some sooji mixture and make as small bowl kind of thing with your hand.
Now stuff coconut mixture and close it with all the sides.
Now flatten or press the stuffed ball slowly.
Deep fry these patties in oil till golden brown and serve hot or at room temperature.

Sending this recipe to Srivalli's Kids Delight event hosted by Vardhini for this month.
