COOL, IT'S VERY COMMON HERE IN BRAZIL, BUT THERE IS ONE DIFFERENCE: WE DON'T USE CARDAMOM. THIS IS KNOWN AS "PÉ DE MOLEQUE", THAT MEANS "LITTLE BOY'S FOOT" 8-P IT'S A FUNNY NAME AND A DELICIOUS SWEET. PROBABLY IT ARRIVED HERE WITH SOME INDIAN A LOT TIMES AGO. I'LL TRY IT WITH SOME CARDAMOM NEXT TIME. THANKS

Wow. Thanks for letting us know about the Brazilian name. Its amazing how the same combinations are being enjoyed with slight variations in different parts of the world.

Most of the Indian sweets use cardamom. Its a favorite flavor here. Try it out and let us know how you like it.
