How to make Koat Pitha?
Kota Pitha is a dessert served in Northeastern State of India.. When we choose Arunachal pradesh recipes we are limited with very few ingredients and recipes to try, I got carrot and banana as my secret ingredient for the month of October for she cooking. This month i was paired with Shobha Keshwani to complete my task, Shobha who writes her recipes in the name of Shobhasfoodmazaa, she have N number of Indian recipes with innovative twist, and she cover all continental cuisines with her explorer food ideas.
Felt really tough to identify a perfect recipe to match for our south Indian taste bud. Koat Pitha is a dessert which is served after a light meal or as a snack with masala chai. Jeshu’s statement “Amma ithu pakoda mathiri irrukku but taste sweet ah irukku” ( Mom this looks like our side pakoda but with sweet taste), and he started calling this as sweet pakoda. We all had a great tea time with this new innovated fritters. Hope this post helps you to learn about a new recipe.
