This summer we have been enjoying an unending supply of Coconuts from our garden. The children have been snacking on the tender coconut flesh and the sweet coconut water as a refreshing thirst quencher.
We use coconut in very few preparations and Coconut barfi/Kopri Mithai/Nariyal barfi/Narlachya Vadya happens to be one of them. Both the kids love it and this time it was particularly made as part of the lad’s birthday feast.
I have blogged about the Coconut barfi recipe way back in 2007. It’s the same recipe (my Mother-in-law’s), the only thing that is different in 2012 are the photos. 🙂
My friend Aparna of My Diverse Kitchen is starting a series of photography exercises so that amateur food photographers like me can work on our photography skills. What better way to start the series than Coconut Barfi? Here’s my photo to kick start this fabulous series.
