I had had this sweets a couple of months ago at a friends place during a prayer. She is from Andhra and this sweet is traditionally made at her place. I liked the idea of this recipe. Its very similar to the soji appam we make in Tamilnadu except that we stuff the kesari in a dough and fry it. I will post it sometime. I actually made this few days ago and decided to post it before navaratri.
In Tamil nadu, we usually invite the ladies in the neighbourhood to our homes and vice versa during navaratri. In some homes, they also keep a golu or doll house. Chundal/sundal and various other delicacies are made during these nine days. There is a practice of offering tambulam or manjal kumkum along with betel levels ,fruits and other goodies to all the ladies who visit. Usually its fun and celebrations during this time.
You can try making this sweet during one of these nine days. Its easy to make and delicious too. It will also be something different from the usual kesari as its kind of new to us. I am sure your friends will be impressed with this simple yet elegant sweet!!
