Diwali Special- Coconut Barfi Recipe


Here is another easy dessert recipe for Diwali. Every Diwali I like to prepare my own sweets instead of purchasing them from the market. This is because of one main reason and that it the quality of the sweets that you get in the market is highly degraded especially during the festive season. Thus, it is always best to prepare them yourself. The good thing about this recipe is that it is very easy and won’t take much time or effort.
