Kuskara – Sweet Crumble
G celebrates her Birthday today, my cousin and lovely roommie for more than a year.Wishing her all the happiness in the world, love ya :-*
When two people with equal culinary
no knowledge meet together – either we get some boisterous dinners or some beautifully arranged 3+ course meals. Experiments might give Perfect dish while Reliable dishes had to be called Experiments often. :-bd
Some memories are like - Fried more than 100 prawns in a single go, prepared weird types of curries and gravies without mixer, cooked
not cooked hard sabudana khichdi , awesome misals, healthy thalipeeths, brought methi n having parathas for days n days n weeks..,,, too many to jot down. :D
So thought of remembering those old days and prepared G’s specialty “Chapaticha Godd Kuskara” ! (Indian flatbread’s sweet crumbled mix).
This is normally prepared with leftover chapatti – easy , healthy and yummy :D
- Chapatis\ Poli\ Phulkas : 3 in number
- Jaggery: 3 tbsp or more as per taste – grated
- Ghee: 3 tbsp
- Poppy seeds: 1tsp
- Grind Chapatis and jaggery coarsely – separately.
- Heat Kadai – add ghee, fry the poppy seeds. Then add chapatis – sauté for a min.
- Add jaggery mix till it melts. Done serve hot.
G’s dad used to prepare laddoos out of these; but the crumble itself gives out such a beautiful aroma I never had the patience to prepare laddoos. I found one similar Laddoo recipe @ shilpas Aayi’s recipe.
This runs as my Recipe #5 for Nupur’s Recipe Marathon; Do check out the fabulous recipes that participated in the marathon on Day 3. As this is one of the creative dish I’ve prepared sending this to Sanjana for her ‘Create for a Chilli Chopper!’. Also sending to RV for her Think Spice- Poppy seeds event, brainchild of Sunita.
