Rice Calas

Kwanzaa is an annual celebration of African-American culture from December 26 to January 1, culminating in a communal feast called Karamu, usually on the sixth day. It was created by activist Maulana Karenga, based on African harvest festival traditions from various parts of West and Southeast Africa. A type of rice pudding fritter, these Rice Calas have a smooth interior and crispy exterior. Recipes similar to this were prepared and sold by women of color (both enslaved and free) in New Orleans and the south.
