Konda Kavum

Also known as the Sri Lankan oil cakes, Konda Kavum is a traditional Sri Lankan sweet. The dish is prepared with rice, brown sugar/jaggery, coconut milk, cardamom, white flour, and water. All the ingredients are put into a blender and formed into a fine smooth paste similar to pancake batter. Then oil (coconut or vegetable oil) is heated in a wok and a tablespoon each of the batter is then dropped into the heated oil. The cake is then cooked till its light brown and then is pressed in the center with the help of a skewer which allows the uncooked batter to come up. The hot oil is then poured over the batter while the cake is turned with the skewer. The cakes are best served with ice cream or whipped cream.
