Cooking is one of my passions. Though I am working, I make nutritious and tasty food at home. I use minimal oil and no artificial colors.

Kaanole (Whole Wheat and Jaggery Steamed Cake)

Awesome Steamed Cake With Jaggery

On Nagara Panchami festival day, we don't make deep-fried or shallow-fried dishes. Instead, we make either raw or steamed dishes. Kaanole is one such food that we make on this day.

Making Kaanole At-a-Glance:

This is an easy recipe. To start with, melt the jaggery powder in warm water. Next, make a soft dough with wheat flour, melted jaggery water, semolina, ghee, and a very little salt. Form small lemon-sized balls with this dough. Roll each of them to get a disc. Fold and apply ghee on each fold, as per instructions. Roll them to get triangle cakes. Steam-cook them.

Serve them hot, topped with some ghee. Kaanole tastes good even when cold. This is a guilt-free sweet dish to relish.

Let's now learn in detail how to make kaanole.
