Akki Soolagadu

Its one of the difficult to cook, but tasty traditional recipe of  Karnataka. Our grandpa’s favourite too.

  • Rice 2bowls
  • Jaggery 3bowls
  • Grated Coconut 1bowl
  • Water
  • Soak rice in water for 3 to 4 hours.
  • Grind the soaked rice to milk consistency.
  • Add 2 bowls of Jaggery to the ground paste
  • Boil this syrup till you get thick syrup or Paka (similar to paka for Kajjaya).
  • Wait till Paka cools down and becomes just warm so that it does not burn your hand.
  • Meanwhile prepare hoorana by adding a bowl of jaggery to a bowl of grated coconut. Mix it well.
  • Now, Soak your hands with little water, take warm Paka little by little and  stuff it with hoorana. Give it oval shape.
  • Garnish with grated coconut.
  • Enjoy soolagadu with ghee or Kaayalu(coconut milk).
Note: Getting proper Paka is the challenging. Unless you are a cookery expert, you may not succeed the first time.
