Today we are sharing Karida Kadubu | Karanji | Karjikai | Karikadubu Recipe with step by step instructions.

Hello, my beautiful people! 😊
In today's post, we are sharing Karanji also known as Karida Kadubu Recipe. It is a sweet dumpling filled with Jaggery and Coconut. There are so many different varieties of stuffings for this recipe and it is also called by so many different names in various states of India. On my side, we call it Gujiya which is either filled by Rava or Mawa and most commonly prepared during Holi and Diwali Festivals. In Maharashtra, this dish is called Karanji and in the South, it is popularly known as Karida Kadubu and it is a very popular recipe during Ganesh Chaturthi. The Kadubu filling can be of Gram Dal too but here we are making the simple version.
I tried this recipe the first time and it turned out well. I hope you guys will like it too. Let's see how to make it!!
