Jambu:fear:

Sri.Jambunathar,

Greetings. I am guessing....கஜ்ஜுரக்கா ....மாந்தம் எடுக்க பாலில் இழைத்து கொடுக்கலாம்? ....பிரியாணியில் முழுசா போட்டிருப்பான்..பேரீச்சம்பழம் விறைத்து கட்டை போல ஆனா மாதிரி இருக்கும் (பெரீச்சம்பழத்திற்க்கும் இதற்கும் சம்பந்தம் இல்லை..)

Cheers!

Hi jambu mama,
This is a sweet veriety of dakshina kannada just like our kozhakkatai (modakam)
in which instead of steaming they fry it. They call it by a special name called ‘Karjikaai’; It resembles Samosa but tastewise, it is sweet.How to make it???

You will need:

  • 1 cup wheat Atta [or wheat flour]
  • 4 table spoons Ghee
  • Salt to taste [a pinch]
  • A pinch of cardamom powder
  • 1 cup grated coconut
  • 3 cups sugar
  • A little milk
  • Raisins
Method:

  • Mix the flour, salt and ghee well. add water and make a dough as for chapattis. Keep aside.
  • Cook the coconut, sugar, milk, raisins and cardamom powder till dry. This is for the stuffing.
  • Make balls out of the dough. Roll them into little Rotis, place some stuffing in the centre , fold into semi circles and bind the edges together. You can use the milk for this for extra bonding.
  • Take care to see the edges are closed completely. Otherwise they’ll open in the oil and disintegrate.Now a days u get moulds also.
  • Fry till light brown. The end-result should be crispy Karjikai with the sweet coconut layer coated inside.
  • Serve hot.
