Chandrakala is an Indian Diwali sweet recipe with maida and khoya as main ingredients. Learn how to make this sweet with step by step pictures and full video in this detailed post. I have heard about this sweet a lot but sadly never ever tasted even one in my life. But when I posted badusha in my blog, my mom told they make this chandrakala suryakala like how I have shaped my Badusha. Usually badusha is made just like doughnut shape. But I loved the method, so tried and posted that way and it is a super hit. I wanted to try chandrakala for a long time now, but never had an idea about the recipe. As I am a sincere follower of Sutralam suvaikalam show, I saw the video and got some idea. It’s said it is a North Indian sweet and south Indian sweet as well, not sure about the origin. But South Indian sweet stalls sure have this sweet. Chandrakala named after Half moon and suryakala, meaning Sun shaped.
Mainly after Diwali, this sweet is sold in the shops. Few elder relatives of mine say that, after Diwali is over, the about to spoil milk sweets, sweets are mixed in the stuffing and sold. Not sure if it is true though. Basically both have same stuffing I guess, but just the shape is different. But you can differentiate the stuffing if you want. I guess this is similar to gujiya and lavang latika as well. This tastes really yummy with khoya and nuts filling with flavour from saffron and cardamom. Lets learn how to make Chandrakala, suryakala sweet. Please watch the video for easy understanding.
