Authenticity Slice

Don’t take out the water while grinding the all-purpose flour. Authentic kilsa has mud-like texture.

Trivia Tadka

This easy-to-make sweet dish from Northern states of South India is prepared with maida and coconut milk; it is a Bakri-eid special. Kilsa has its healthy variants in the form of wheat and ragi too.


  • Coconut milk (first press 1 cup, second press ½ cup)
  • All-purpose white flour (maida) (2 tbsp)

  • Grated coconut (nariyal) (1/2 cup)
  • Salt (½ pinch)
  • Rose petals (to garnish)


  • Dissolve all-purpose flour in 1 cup of water, check for lumps, strain and keep it aside.
