Recipe for 'Kobbari Mithai' and my caprice return to INDIA!!!!!!!

Folks, guess what??!?!!!???!? We are in India currently!!!!! Like I put up in my previous post, we were supposed to move to chicago last week... But there were a few changes in Naveen's project plans and we had to come to India all of a sudden!! It all happened so suddenly that we didn't have enough time to even inform friends before leaving. It was total chaos at my end last week. But we were so thrilled by the idea of coming to India that the last-minute running around didn't bother us at all !! :-). It feels great to be back in India among family and friends!! Thanx so much to all of you for your wishes and sweet words. It was really nice of you to wish me!

Kobbari Mithai, also known as coconut burfi is a traditional karnataka recipe. It is usually made for festivals and other special occasions. I had my mom make it for me this time and it turned out really good!! It is a very simple and easy to make recipe. Hope you like it...


2 cups Fresh grated coconut
1 cup Sugar, powdered
1/2 tsp Elaichi, powdered
3-4 tbsp Raisin-Cashew-Almond mixture
1-2 tsp Ghee/Butter
2-3 tsp Milk powder (optional)

  1. Mix coconut and sugar well with hands and keep aside for about 30 mins (or until the sugar dissolves).
  2. Heat a kadai and pour the mixture into it.
  3. Saute on low flame until the mixture forms a single dumpling (approx 15-20 mins). Add the remaining ingredients (except ghee/butter) and mix well.
  4. Grease a plate with ghee/butter and pour the mixture into it. Spread evenly on the plate and let it cool for a while.
  5. With a knife, cut into desired shape when it is still warm. Store in air tight containers.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
