This is a very simple and easy sweet item and I used to like to eat often when I was Kid.I enjoyed well when my Mom prepares it for me and used to pack it in my snack box.As soon as I start kept it in my mouth this delicacy melts soon.Those days are memorable and Sweet !!

This can be prepared for any occasion,Festival time too as a Naivedyam/Prasadam with the Fresh coconut which is not offered to deity ,the broken coconut pieces.

So friends,I tried this recipe from my Mother and well enjoyed by my kid and sharing with you all this Simple recipe.


  • Fresh grated coconut-2cups
  • Sugar- 1 1/2 cups or adjust 2cups of your choice
  • Water-1/2 glass
  • Cardamom pods- 2(seeds are finely powdered)
  • A tray or plate greased with ghee
  • Take a big vessel ,add water and sugar.
  • Keep the heat on medium flame ,let the sugar to melt completely to form a sugar syrup.
  • Cook it until the sugar syrup reaches softball like consistency.
  • Check the right consistency by taking a cold water in  a cup and add a drop of sugar syrup.It should holds its shape i.e;soft ball does not dissolve into water.
  • Add the grated coconut and Elachi powder to the sugar syrup.
  • Keeping the heat on medium flame ,stir frequently to prevent the mixture from sticking to the pan.
  • The mixture will be reduced to half within 10 or 15 minutes.
  • In this stage the mixture becomes very thick and comes away easily from the sides of pan or vessel.
  • This indicates to turn off the gas.
  • Immediately  pour this mixture in to the greased tray or plate.
  • Let it evenly spread with  a spatula and cut in to squares.
  • Let it cool.
  • Remove the pieces and store it in an air tight container and stays fresh up to 2weeks.
  • Serve it and enjoy.
Moreover,I took an oppurtunity in participating the ARS Event- D For Desserts hosting by Suvidha and  sending this recipe for the Event.

  • You can make balls with this mixture too.
  • Be ready with the greased tray as soon as you turn off the gas otherwise ,the mixture will be like coconut flakes.
