These soft, scrumptious savory stuffed snacks are so very Good. Good in the sense so divine. Which means they are meant to be a festival stuff. I am a kind of savory stuff lover which you all know obviously because ahmmm, you all follow me. And I know you would be looking around some specific sweets and savories that is to be prepared on Ganesh chaturthi. I was kind of hesitating to make sweet again because there is already much sugary, jaggery condiments lying around the kitchen jars. So probably this “corn khara kadubu” has it’s turn to be presented here now at this moment. Believe me, my teen, young daughter loved it so much that half of it has been gulped over by her.
Khara kadubu is suppose to be a Karnataka style dumpling and it is made with varieties of stuffing. Mostly the legumes and lentils with some spices are used up. Since I am a lover of sweet corn, I thought to use the same as stuffing. And it’s a total winner recipe because batch of snack have been emptied just within a day.
The outer layer that holds the stuffing is prepared using rice flour which is cooked to perfection in appropriate amount of water. Like, I have used 1 cup water for 1/2 cup of rice flour. When this dough is rolled to circle, it doesn’t crack and it holds the stuffing. The stuffing prepared by coarsely grinding the boiled corn with spices fills in nicely without oozing our. And amazingly tasty “corn khara kadubu” is what you have for Lord Ganesha’s offering.
