Kuttundi ~ Sour n Sweet tamarind candy

Perhaps.... Kuttundi is Kuttida Unde which literally translates to 'pound and made laddu'

Saliva does not seem to stop once you pop this candy inside. It is a good exercise to facial muscles. If you don't know how to wink, this candy will teach you with ease!

Do not go by its looks, I know the picture is not so good, but the candy itself is slurrp!!!!!!!!

You need :
Cleaned and deseeded tamarind : 1 fistfull (break it down into smaller pieces for blending
Roasted Cumin Powder : 1tsp
Jaggery : as need***
Red Chilli powder: 1tsp
Salt: as needed

*** - Jaggery is to balance sour levels. You can add little more after you have balanced just to make it nice!

Method: 1
1.Take all the ingredients in a blender. Blender Jar- 'used to grind dry ingredients' so, choose the right jar from your collection.

2.Blend them together. Resulting product is a sticky mass. Scoop our and mix well. Let it rest for 4-5 hrs for the flavors to blend well. Knead this mixture again with oiled hands and cut it down into smaller pieces and wrap in a candy wraper. Store in refrigerator.

Method 2 : Take all the ingredients in a pessel and mortar. Pound them to mix the ingredients well. Rest of the process is same as above.

Enjoy this candy!!! Till the next post, take care and have a happy weekend :)

@Anonymous,

Probably everyone who is born 3-4 decades before share the same memory! We too have similar childhood memories.
