  1. Heat a tablespoon full of ghee in a pan. Add fresh grated coconut and sugar.
  2.  Slowly cook this mixture in a very slow to medium flame till the sugar gets melted and the coconut is cooked and soft. After about 10 – 12 minutes of cooking when the mixture is slightly getting solidified or a lump, the mixture is ready.

I just made this, but I modified by adding dried cranberries, which make a great contrast to the sweetness of the dessert. Just waiting for it to cool. *nom*
