I have memories of having these kaap as a kid, my mom and grand mom used to make it , my masi makes varieties of vadis using potato, beetrot, carrots, and various essence. This was my first attempt making these, and they turned out great. This is a basic recipe simple and yummy flavoured only with nutmeg.
3 cups Scrapped coconuts.
2 cups Sugar
1cup full cream Milk
1 tsp Nutmeg powder.
1 tbsp Ghee.
2 drops Food colour (Optional)
Break the coconut from centre and scrape out white portion from it.
Heat a non stick pan
Add the freshly grated coconut and sugar,give it a good mix.
Pour in the full fat milk.
Mix well and let the mixture cook on medium heat for about 30 minutes.
The mixture will thicken slowly.
Once the mixture comes together well, and when the coconut becomes soft,add nutmeg powder and colour.Mix well.
Remove the mixture from heat.Grease a pan with ghee, Remove the mixture in the greased plate.
Allow the mixture to cool down. Then gently cut out squares or diamond shape pieces.
Remove in a serving dish.Serve.
Happy Cooking !!!
