Take a kadai/pan (non stick preferable) add sugar and just enough water (approximately 1/2 cup) to cover the sugar and boil it.

When the sugar water starts boiling, add cardamom powder, ghee and the grated coconut.

Simmer and cook stirring often, till the coconut mixture starts foaming and leaves the sides of the pan.Take a small mixture and if you are able to make a ball out of it, switch off the flames.

Pour it on the greased tray or plate. After it cools a little, make cuts in desired shapes.

Leave it to cool completely. After that take the pieces gently and store it in an air tight container.

Note –Use fresh mature coconuts for best results.
