I wrote a post on Kotas a while ago and folks have been asking for a recipe……..

I’ve been wanting to make up a Kota recipe but needed some encouragement.  So, my sister visited and she was keen.  It is much fun when two eager beavers are preparing them…

We omitted the potato chips but the kotas were quiet filing.  Talking about potato chips,  some say kotas are fattening but still choose to have them with chips.  Let’s look at it this way, bread used is a carbohydrate, the chips are carbohydrates with fat absorbed from frying.  So, why add them?

On the other hand, some folks have physically demanding jobs and therefore it is okay for them to have a kota, with chips and the works.  Their bodies need that energy.   I think people should look at their energy output and let that determine their food intake then stop making statements like kotas are fattening.  After all, too much of anything is bad.

We grew up on kotas, some of us would remember them from way back in our school days.  Come lunch time we would run to queue up at the tuck shop and buy them.  Hope you get to try out the recipe.  Enjoy!
