Belgaum kunda or belgavi kunda recipe explained with step by step pictures. Belgaum kunda is prepared using sugar, milk and curd. Belgaum kunda is an extremly popular sweet recipe from belagaum. Belgaum is a town in north Karnataka. Belgaum kunda is very tasty dessert recipe.

I have tasted original kunda from Belgaum many a times. But I didn't know the recipe. So I started discovering the recipe through my north Karnataka friends. I also did a quick online study. At the end I finalised this recipe, which I felt the taste is very similar to the original Belgaum kunda recipe. You can find north Karnataka recipes here.

When I was searching for the tasty kunda recipe, I came across this interesting story..."The discovery of this sweet was quite incidental. Once, Jakku Marwadi was boiling milk in his kitchen. In a hurry, he forgot to switch the stove off and the milk continued boiling for a long time. Gradually, the milk had taken a solid form by the time Jakku Marwadi came back to switch the stove off. When he tasted the solid form of milk, it tasted sweet. Then, he mixed some khowa into the milk and started boiling it for long hours. This time the taste was even better. A happy Marwadi gave the sweet a name — calling it Kunda"...(source:

Anyway whatever may be the story..we all enjoyed the tasty homemade Kunda. My son loved it so much and I was very happy as a Mother. So sharing this tasty recipe with you guys. Do try and give me the feedback.
