Fried Semolina Dumplings Stuffed With Coconut Jaggery Filling | Kakra Pitha

Fried Semolina Dumplings Stuffed With Coconut Jaggery Filling | Kakra Pitha - Plattershare - Recipes, food stories and food lovers
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.
