 Home made chocolate sounds interesting but recipe is pretty much popular in South India particularly in Tamilnadu(Who lives near Andhra Tamilnadu border also aware of this). This is Grandma’s recipe and my mom used to prepare very frequently. The recipe is prepared with coconut and jaggery like coconut jaggery laddoo with slight change in making process and the proportions. After making kammara kattu they are made into chocolate shapes and rolled using butter paper. Just small presentation changes the entire look of the recipe. Here I present kids favourite traditional South Indian chocolate recipe kammara kattu to relish this Krishna janmashtami. Njoy Cooking, Serving n Savoring!
