  • Bring to a boil, simmer till almost done but not mushy.
  • Add jaggery, cook further till all water is absorbed.
  • Add all other ingredients, mix well, till not overly moist, keep aside.
  • To Proceed:
  • Take a lemon sized portion of dough, make a ball.
  • Roll into a thin square of 3 inch sides.
  • Wet edges by running a wet finger along all edges of one side.
  • Now place a tsp of filling in centre of rolled dough.
  • Fold one edge over the other, seal moistened edges, securing all openings.
  • Repeat for few more kadabus.
  • Heat ghee in frying pan, till lightly smoky.
  • Let in a few prepared kadabus.
