Theme : Cooking with Coconut
Yesterday I used fresh coconut and made ladoos , today I have have used the dried coconut and made a Chakki. Chakki is a piece and this particular mithai is a speciality from Uttarkhand. While on my trip to Haridwar , I learnt this sweet from a local there. The only time taken is for grating the dried coconut, rest all is done in a jiffy.
The sweet has just coconut, sugar and Cardamon. Yes just three ingredients but tastes absolutely delicious.
Tomorrow I will come up with yet another coconut delicacy…you see this week’s theme is Cooking with Coconut. You shall see a new form of coconut tomorrow, so come back tomorrow for a Coconut delicacy.
