This sweet is made with semolina,nuts,coconut,
desiccated coconut,dates,mawa or milk powder
and sugar.As the addition of dates contribute to
the sweetness,sugar can be reduced.Using of
fresh grated coconut is an option.
A little sugar has to be caramelised to add to
the colour if preferred.I added 2-3 tbsp of
brown sugar for the colour .This can be made
with powdered jaggery too.
