This is a traditional Indian sweet prepared with coconut and condensed milk.


PREPARATION TIME: 10 minutes
COOKING TIME: 15-20 minutes
SERVES: 10


INGREDIENTS (modified)

Sweetened condensed milk - 1 tin (400 g)

Fresh coconut, grated - 300 g

Food colour - red, few drops

Daun pandan - 2-3 pieces


METHOD

  1. Pour condensed milk and grated coconut into a thick-bottom frying pan (kuali) and mix well.
  2. Heat the mixture, stirring constantly, so that it does not stick to the bottom of the pan.
  3. Once heated, cook on a slow fire till the mixture starts leaving the sides of the kuali. Remove from fire.
  4. Divide the mixture into 2 portions. Spread out one portion evenly onto a greased plate.
  5. To the other portion, add a few drops of red food colour. Mix well to get a pale pink colour. Spread on top of the white layer and leave to cool.
  6. Cut into squares when cool.
  7. Store in glass jar or refrigerated.
