Kakra Pitha

One night I decided to try to use up some of the semolina we had with some desiccated coconut. A quick google after turned up Kakra Pitha as the closest thing, so I shall call these Kakra Pitha.


  • 40g sugar

  • 40g desiccated coconut

  • a pinch of ground nutmeg

  • 300ml water

  • 275g semolina

  • 20g sunflower oil


  1. Place the water, sugar, coconut and nutmeg in a pan and bring to the boil.

  2. When boiling add the semolina and stir well.

  3. Continue to heat, stirring all the time until it starts to dry out.

  4. Remove the semolina dough from the pan and add the sunflower oil and start to heat it.

  5. Roll the semolina dough into balls a couple of cm wide and then use the palm of your hands to press them into flat circles.

  6. Put into the oil and fry for a few minutes until each side is crisp and golden.

  7. Serve immediately.

Makes about 15.
