The DESI ENERGY CAKE – Kachariyu

It’s a typical Gujju recipe called ‘Kachariyu’, while I’ve also tasted the south Indian version of this, generally referred to as ‘Karuppu Ella Urandai’.

It is extremely simple to make. It’s made with a combination of Black Sesame Seeds (Til), Desiccated Coconut (Copra), Almonds (Badam), Melon Seeds (Magaz), Organic Jaggery (Gul), Dried Ginger Powder (Soonth), Cardamom (Elaichi) Powder, a pinch of Nutmeg (Jaayfal) and Ghee. Once again all the ingredients are good for winters as they give the energy needed during winters, keep the body warm from inside, boosts up immunity, lubricates joints, prevents body aches.

‘Kachariyu’ falls under the category of ‘Vasaanu’ derived from the word Vasaana meaning ‘herbs and spices’ that are warming foods used in making these extremely traditional winter delights.

Learn to make it the traditional way. Even kids can learn to make this easily as it does not involve cooking. Have a few spoonful of Kachariyu or an Ella Urandai in the mornings at breakfast and feel energetic for the entire day.

Note – Black Sesame Seed is yet another ingredient which is best used during winters over other seasons.
