Those of  you know about Belgaum, will definitely know about Kunda. It's very famous sweet of Belgaum.
I love most of sweet dishes and Kunda by far is one of my to-die-for sweet dish. 
One of my friend had told me to prepare this dish long back,when I was not even blogging.
She asked me to make it, as she knew I had desire to cook new dishes. I had totally forgotten about it and recently when she connected with me after long time,I remembered it.
So, decided to make it for a special occasion.
