Coconut Mithai

Team AckoFeb 8, 2024

This is a South Indian Sweet dish, which is very yummy and healthy. Coconuts are highly nutritious and rich in fibre, vitamins C, E, B1, B3, B5 and B6 and minerals including iron, selenium, sodium, calcium, magnesium and phosphorous. Fibre is essential for a well-tuned digestive system and can help the body remove potentially harmful waste. Vitamin C helps to repair and regenerate tissues, protects against heart disease.



    Ingredients to make Coconut Mithai:

    160 gm fresh coconut powder, 145 gm sugar, 4 tbsp milk powder, ½ tsp ground cardamom, 2 tsp ghee, 1 lemon, 10gm almonds, 10gm walnuts

    Steps to prepare Coconut Mithai:

    1. Heat the coconut and sugar together in a heavy-bottomed frying pan over low heat, stirring frequently, until most of the moisture evaporates and the coconut and sugar begin to bind together, about 10 minutes. Sprinkle the milk powder over the mixture and stir. The milk powder helps absorb moisture and bind the mixture.

    2. Coconuts vary in their water content. If the mixture is still too loose, add a bit more milk powder. Add cardamom powder and mix.

    3. Grease a rimmed plate with the ghee. Spread the coconut mixture evenly and press and flatten with your hands. Cool completely. Cut into desired shape and serve with walnuts and almonds as decoration. The prep time is 15 min, cooking time is 15 min and extra 1 hour for fermenting.
