There is an advantage for sweet snacks.There are more healthy options of preparing them unlike the spicy ones that often need to be fried.

So obviously as we start opting healthy snacks,sweet snacks get in the book more often.

I love recipes that pass through relations..Whenever you cook them it reminds of those people who took the time to share it for you..This recipe was recently added to my cookbook via my sister who got it from her neighbour :-)Thankyou dears..It was new for me and it was easy hence definitely in my Ramadans quick healthy snack ideas..2016-05-09 18.54.25 (1)

I have searched what Kums means before..Any cake that uses a mix of egg,sugar,and any fruit or vegetable or flavours has been called Kums..There are carrot kums or apple kums or plain egg kums which we usually try..Addition of coconut makes this more rich..So to the recipe..

  1. 1.You can try it in a small pressurecooker without the whistle as in other kums recipes..But i haven't tried it though.
  2. 2.Don't halve the recipe as this one itself was thin enough.
  3. 3.Taste the batter and adjust according to your sugar taste.This one was mildly sweet enough for me.

  1. Ah! now I am seeing a lot of recipes! We call all that types Pola. And I avoid making them because of the number of eggs go into it. But when served or invited for iftar, I pick these and eat like there is no tomorrow! LOL!

    1. Haha..thats a clever foodie tip then😅Polas are not a regular snack at my place too..its but an essential snack of every festival occasion though☺And for iftars,the ease of making them is definitely the attraction..
