A: “…..bomb “, replies with a broad playful smile.
Strange!!! Something doesn’t make sense, right?? :D This is the reply you can expect from any of my uncles or aunts or cousins at the paternal side not because they eat bomb but they are actually referring to a delicacy called Kozhukkatta! I don’t know who came up with this funny thing or how it came up….it could be probably because of its round bomb-like shape……but all I know is it is a sweet edible bomb!! ‘Naadan’ means old fashioned or country style. It is Kerala’s traditional sweet and soft steamed dumplings, stuffed with sweet fillings, generally a combination of grated coconut, chopped nuts and raisins, sweetened with either sugar or jaggery, flavored and perfumed with a touch of cardamom.
Here is a pictorial for making Kozhukkatta, steamed sweet dumplings.
