Last minute 4 Ingredient Indian version of coconut sweet candy!
Wishing you all a Happy Diwali!
I made this for Diwali, the festival of lights with Motichur ladoo, Mini Mint Murukku, Ragi Oats murukku and few other snacks and sweets. I have had kamarkat at home, but my mom makes it from leftover jaggery and coconut I guess. So, it was never made as a special recipe. I came to know about kamarkat only about few days back. Kamarkat is a hard ball coconut sweet candy which we used to get in India In road side shops ( petti kadai). It is famous along with jigarthand, javvu mittai, elandha vadai and Thaen mittai. We are not using sugar here and we are using jaggery here which is healthy than usual sugar sweets. We don’t find them in the petti shops often now, but we get in usual grocery stores sealed and everything. But somehow I guess some things are meant to be where they are. It reminds in my memory as a petti shop sweet! When I made these, it came out very flavorful and tasty I did share it with my friends and family! The way we eat these sweets is not by biting, it’s by chewing them for long!
