Kadubu (Kobri Sakare)

Kadubu especially made during Ganesha chaturthi. This is deep fried kadubu. This is filled with kobri/coconut and sugar and nuts. Every year my mom and myself used to do this for Ganesha Chaturthi and make a garland (count = 21 ) out of this for Lord Ganesha. This is karnataka special.
