Kakra is a traditional Odiya sweet dish recipe which is a deep-fried coconut stuffed semolina dish and is usually prepared during any puja or function.

To make Kakra, you firstly need to boil 2 cups water and slowly put the molasses in it and keep stirring it properly so that no lumps are formed. Next, you need to put in a little aniseed as well as a pinch of salt as well. After that, the wheat flour goes in next into the boiling water. You need to stir it properly to make a good, thick dough for the Kakra. Now, you need to keep the dough aside for enough time to allow it to cool.

Knead the cooled dough properly and roll it out into smooth Kakra rolls. Fry them until they’re golden brown in oil or ghee. Serve hot!
