  • 7 oz Granulated sugar
  • 4 tbsp Water
  • 2 Egg yolks optional
  • 7 oz Coconut nariyal, white part only, grated
  • 1 cup Fresh bread cubes crust removed
  • 1 tbsp Raisins kishmish, washed
  • 1 tbsp Cashew nuts kaju / almonds (badaam), blanched, chopped
  • 1 tsp Butter / Ghee


  • Dissolve the sugar in the water in a pan on moderate heat.
  • If using egg, beat the egg yolks well. Pour into an icing bag with a very fine nozzle. Drizzle the egg yolk into the hot sugar syrup in a lacy pattern. When set, lift out with a slotted spoon and leave to cool.
  • Add the coconut and bread to the remaining sugar syrup and cook till it comes together and the moisture is absorbed (approximately 5-7 minutes). Do not let the mixture get too dry.
  • Add the dried fruits and butter / ghee; mix well.
  • Pour on to a greased plate and leave to set. Gently arrange the cooked egg yolk on top, if desired.
