2 tsp ghee
1 cup coconut
1 cup water

Recipe Method

In a heavy bottom vessel, add water, honey and jaggery and mix together. Simmer over medium heat, stirring frequently, until the honey turns to thread consistency. Add cardamom powder and dried ginger, coconut and remove from heat.

Stir the puffed rice into the honey mixture and mix it thoroughly using a big flat spoon until everything is thoroughly coated.

When it is warm enough to hold by hand, grease the hand with ghee, take the mixture and roll tightly into a ball. The balls must be made before the mixture cools down completely. Or spread on a greased sheet/plate and let it cool a few minutes and cut into bars.

Serve after it has completely cooled.

Egg Curry Recipe

Egg curry in India is known as Anda Curry that is a very simple recipe and is very popular with children. Perfect for lovers of hardboiled eggs, the spicy curry enhances the flavor.

There are 2 ways to prepare it, soft or more solid, with generous amounts of melted butter or ghee, chickpea flour and sugar.

The mysore pak was originally known as masoor pak, and was made with masoor dal flour. The exact origin of the recipe is unknown, although some claim that it was created in or near the Mysore Palace by a cook raised in the Kakasura Madappa.

Having no idea for his creation, Madappa decided to call the recipe Mysore Pak, which means in Sanskrit and…
