i have a very special connection to this traditional dharwad peda recipe since childhood. my early schooling was done on hubli, the twin city of dharwad and since than i have a strong connection to the north karnataka cuisine. The classic dessert dharwad peda recipe. i personally loved the extra sugary coating and the juiciness it had to offer in its taste. after moving from hubli to udupi i started to miss it a lot. even though dharwad pede was easily available in udupi but it never matched the authentic thakur’s peda outlet from dharwad.

- Sugar – 3/4 cup (vary as per your liking) + 1 tbsp for garnishing

The wafting aroma hits you first. The pleasant, sweet smell of the oven-baked pie triggers every taste bud with the tingling anticipation. This isn’t any ordinary pie though — it is the khova naan, best eaten hot with every mouthful being gifting with a burst of molten khova.
A signature Bengaluru delicacy, the khova naan, originated somewhere in the late 90s as an alternative to the original grated coconut filled naan. Bakers in the Shivaji Nagar area started the trend and it soon caught on as a popular evening snack. One of the places synonymous with the khova naan is Albert Bakery on Mosque Road in Frazer Town. Mohammad Sabir Faizan, the son of proprietor Nawab Jan, credits his father with introducing the khova naan on the menu.
“The khova-filled crisp naan has takers from across the city. We often have customers, who travel from other ends of the city or daily visitors who flock the bakery just for the khova naan.”
