Here is one more recipe which I learned from my mother recently. In fact its an old recipe, but never I had got a chance to prepare it :) Kadlemaddi is bit similar to the filling which we prepare for Obbattu. This traditional sweet is also called as 'Hayagreeva'. Below is the recipe of this simple sweet which is liked by most of the sweet lovers!   

Preparation time: 40 minutes
Servings: 4
Difficulty level: Medium

Split chana dal - 3 cups
Jaggery - 1 3/4 cup (according to sweetness)
Sugar - 1/4 cup or according to taste
Salt - 1 1/2 tsp
Fresh grated coconut - 1 1/2 cup (see tips)
Cloves - 2
Cardamom - 2
Ghee (optional) - 2 tsp
Cashews (optional) - 10
Raisins (optional) - 15

Soak chana dal for about 30 minutes and pressure cook with enough water till very soft. It will get cooked nicely within 1 - 2 whistles.
Drain off all the excess water and mash the cooked mixture lightly using a ladle or a masher.
Take a heavy bottom pan and combine the mashed dal, jaggery, sugar, salt and grated coconut.
Keep mixing it on medium flame till most of the liquid content is evaporated. Once the mixture becomes thick and won't stick to the ladle any more, add cashew pieces, raisins, powdered cloves and cardamom and switch off the flame.  
Finally, add 2 tsp of ghee to the Kadle Maddi, mix it well and close the lid. Allow to get set for 10 minutes before serving.
Serve it warm with a spoonful of ghee on the top. It tastes nice even without ghee.

  • Kadle Maddi can be prepared using sugar also. Adding of jaggery is not a compulsion here. But adding of jaggery will definitely make a difference in taste.
