COCONUT SWEETS

 


COCONUT SWEET / COCONUT CANDY 

A simple and easy recipe for a timeless Anglo-Indian Delicacy. Bursting with the goodness of fresh grated (scraped) coconut, sugar and milk and a hint of vanilla essence. This baby pink sweet will rekindle nostalgic childhood memories of helping to stir the sweet while its being prepared to greasing the big plate the molten pink lava would be poured on to and finally to scraping and licking the residues left in the dekshi!!!

Makes 30 pieces    Time required: 1 hour 
Ingredients 
2 cups grated coconut                            
3 cups sugar                                          
1 cup milk 
1 teaspoon ghee
½ teaspoon vanilla essence                   
½ teaspoon food colour either pink or green

Melt the sugar with the milk in a thick bottomed vessel. Add the grated coconut and mix well. Cook till the coconut is soft. Add the vanilla essence, pink or green food colour and ghee and mix well. Simmer on low heat till the mixture becomes thick and leaves the sides of the vessel. Pour on to a greased plate and cut into squares when slightly cold
