Kumbilappam
« on: November 21, 2012, 10:44 AM »
Does anyone know anything about these?  Got them from an asian supermarket recently.  I have tried many weird and wonderful ready-made products from India, many of which are not to my taste; generally too salty or rather bland.  But these are lovely.  I wonder if they are meant to be a savory or sweet?  I steamed one the other day and had it as a starter with a lamb samosa.  Very nice indeed.  They are sort of sweet but this is offset by the spices.  It didn?t feel like I was eating my dinner and pudding at the same time if you know what I mean. They are as cheap as chips but perhaps someone has a recipe.




Cheers.

Never seen em before. A nice source for Tej Patta leaves though which they've neglected to mention in the ingredients  :P

Found a webite with quite a bit of info including a recipe.  They are south indian (kerala) jack fruit dumplings.  I have a veggie friend who visits occasionally and they will love these;  a change from veg samosa.  Look really easy to make, providing I can get hold of some jack fruit that is.
