Und kadabu

Und kadabu is a snack that is a specialty of north Karnataka too. This is steamed and so should not be confused with the usual kadabu. This is served with menthe – very healthy because of high iron in the menthe.

Ingredients: 1 cup Jowar flour, 1 cup wheat flour, 1 table spoon oil and salt.


  • Take water in a bowl
  • Add salt and oil and bring it to boil.
  • Add the mixture of jowar and wheat flour in small portions with rapid stirring to avoid lump formation, to obtain a solid consistency.
  • Allow to cool.
  • Transfer to a shallow pan and knead thoroughly well.
  • Prepare small balls and press gently with palm to get the shape of mini idlis.
  • Steam these in a perforated plate and serve hot with kuchida khara.


Methe Kadabu:

Material : 4 cups fresh chopped methy leaves, 2 table spoons oil, cumin seeds, asafoetida, 1 cleaned bulb garlic (India size), 1 table spoon green chilli paste and salt to taste and und kadabu from above.
