Hi guys..It’s festive meal time in a row. Because it’s September month. In this month festivals approach one after the other and eating yummy feast plus sweet condiments is inevitable for us. And we Indians are accustomed to it. Which is why I am posting a festive special recipe today. It is “karikadubu” which literally means deep fried dumpling. This deep fried goody is offered to Lord Ganesha in most part of Karnataka. It’s total bliss to dip this kadubu in ghee and make our mouth full.
This recipe has two parts like initially we should have the dough ready for outer covering and then stuffing. Since the dough needs some resting time I follow this order. Outer covering is prepared with wheat flour for healthier reasons though all purpose flour can be a substitute. Please make a note that the dough has to be stiff.
Bengal gram stuffing of “karikadubu” is actually the taste booster. Cooked lentils when mix up with jaggery, ghee and cardamom flavor give rich deliciousness to kadubu. You can even play around and use the stuffing which is of your personnel favorite. Coconut plus jaggery, sesame seeds plus jaggery would also can make karikadubu a tasty affair. So what are your plans for this festival? How do you make sihi kadubu? Deep fried or Steamed?
