Coconut Wadi/ Naral Wadi

This being the first post of the new calendar year, I would like to wish y'all a happy, healthy and prosperous new year. Maharashtrians follow the lunar calendar and thus, the Maharashtrian new year falls on the day of Gudi Padwa, but due to western influences, we celebrate new year according to the Gregorian calendar as well. Traditionally, all new beginings are made on a sweet note, and hence I would like to share one of my personal favourites, the Naral Wadi/ Coconut Wadi (नारळ वाडी).

The recipe uses minimal ingredients and is super easy to make.

Recipe for Coconut/ Naral Wadi:


Fresh Coconut, Shredded175 gms
Sugar125 gms
Khawa / Khoya100 gms
SaffronA few strands

How to make Coconut/ Naral Wadi:

1.Mix all the ingredients in a non-stick pan and cook on medium heat, stirring continually.
2.When the mixture begins to form one 'clump' and starts to leave the sides of the pan, consider it done.
3.Spread this mix evenly in a pre-greased tin and let it cool.
4.Once cooled, cut the 'slab' into pieces. Traditionally these wadis are square or diamond shaped but you can get creative!

The wadis need to be stored in an airtight container and last for about a week, or until you polish 'em off. Whichever is earlier !

This recipe will give ~1500 calories.
