Kadumbuttu is one of the most popular dishes of Coorg. The best accompaniment for Kadumbuttu is the much famous Pandi Curry, which is a spicy, tangy, flavourful Pork curry.
Thari or coarsely ground rice is the main ingredient used to prepare the dish. If you cannot find broken raw rice at your nearby grocers, do not fret. Take any raw white rice and soak for 30 minutes or till it becomes soft. Drain the water and spread on a paper or cloth. Once the moisture has gone, you can grind them coarsely and use.
