Belegavi Style Kunda Recipe is a sweet popularly made in Belegav (Karnataka) that got influenced from Rajasthan. The sweet has an incidental story on how it got originated. One day when “Jakku Marwadi” put milk to boil, he forgot to turn off the heat. As a result the milk boiled over for a long time and got reduced. When he realized this he tasted the milk and felt it was quite sweet so he added some more khova to the milk and created a sweet and called it Kunda.
It is called in different names in various languages as the processes of making it may slightly vary. It is called as “Terati Pal” in Tamil Nadu and in north India it is also called as “Kalkand”.
