Kaayi kadubu iswhat we make on Ganesha festival day. Its Lord Ganesha's favourite:-). We do this along with Kandhunde. You can check for that recipe too in my blog.' During my childhood, i used to eat kadubus on a comeptation basis with my aunt. i use to eat around 12-15 kadubus on that day. Its one of my fav festive sweet
Here is the recipe for Kaayi kadubu
- Finely grated coconut- 2 cups
- Jaggery-3/4 cup( Finely powder it)
- Rice flour- 1 cup
- Water- 1 cup
- milk- 1/2 cup
- oil- 3 tspns
- salt- a pinch
- cardamom powder- little
Mix the grated coconut along with jaggery and put it on a medium flame and fry it till you get a yummy smell out of it. Take out from the flame. Add cardamom powder and keep it aside.
Meanwhile, in another pan. Add milk, water, salt and oil. Let it boil on a high flame. Add rice flour in middle and slowly cook for 15 mins on a low flame. Take out from the flame and mix it gently. Mix it when it is hot only so that it will not form lumps.
Make small balls out of it and use a presser or a chapathi rolling pin to make a thin patties out of it.You can use rice flour while doing these kadubus too if you are making them out of hand.stuff the coconut jaggery mixture in to it. ( That mixture should be cool)
Fold the Chapathi and seal them with some water.
Steam all the Kadubus in a pressure cooker for 10 mins by adding some oil on top of it. I used idli stand for making kadubus.
Yummy Kadubus are ready!!!!!!!!!!!!
