About this Recipe

The deep fried sweet dumplings made with Suji or Semolina is a hot favourite item which is offered to Lords and Goddesses during most festivals in Orissa. Kakra Pitha is made with various different fillings like Paneer-Sugar, Sesame seeds - Jaggery, Coconut-Sugar, Coconut-Jaggery etc. I like the coconut-jaggery filling out of all options. The small batch was prepared to go to a friend's house to be offered during the prayer ceremony.

Ingredients & Quantity
  • 1 cup grated coconut
  • 1 cup jaggery
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 + 1/3 cup Suji
  • A pinch of salt
  • A pinch of cardamom powder
  • A pinch of black pepper powder
  • 2 tspn sugar
  • Oil for frying
How to cook?
  1. Cook coconut and jaggery together in a pan for 7-8 minutes. Jaggery should melt and mix well with coconut. Add pinch of cardamom and pinch of black crushed black pepper
  2. Switch off the flame and allow the mixture to cool down
  3. Heat 2 cups of water in a non-stick kadai.
  4. As water starts boiling, lower the flame and add the rawa while stirring the mixture constantly.
  5. Add 2 tspn sugar and pinch of salt. Cook it till rawa gets absorbed by the water and it becomes really hard to move the spatula through the mixture. It looks like a white dough.
