"Shared joy is double joy" - Proverb.
What can be a sweeter experience than sharing sweets on a festive occasion? The joy is double when you prepare it yourself and gift it to your near and dear. I love receiving edible gifts as much as I like giving them as these can be customized to one's preference and has a personal touch to it than the store bought ones.

Recipe Category: Sweet
Recipe Level: Easy
- 1 cup gram flour
- 1 cup ghee or clarified butter
- 1 cup whole milk
- 1 cup grated coconut ( fresh or desiccated)
- 3 cups sugar ( I used 2 1/2 cups as the granule size was big)
- Grease a tray or plate with ghee and set aside.
- In a kadai, heat 2 tbsp of ghee and roast the gram flour until a nice aroma wafts.
- Simmer the flame.
- Add the coconut, milk and sugar followed by ghee.
- Keep stirring the mixture in low medium flame until there are no lumps and cook until the mixture thickens.
- At one stage the mixture bubbles and thickens into a porous mass. You can notice this within 15 minutes of stirring.
- Transfer the mixture to the greased tray/ plate and smoothen the top with a laddle or with a flat surface of a cup and leave it for a while.
- When it is still warm, draw lines to make square or diamond shaped cakes and gently separate the pieces when it has cooled completely.
