A crunchy coconut treat with a sugary rush, this Nariyal Vadi is a Maharashtrian mithai that is worth trying in this festive season.

It is easy to make but tastes just awesome – the creamy crunch of coconut is combined with the charm of mixed nuts and the rich aroma of ghee to make an intoxicatingly sweet mithai.

Use soft, freshly-grated coconut and not refrigerated or frozen ones. That too, you must grate only the white portion of the coconut and not go up to the brown portion near the shell.

A handy and tasty treat that can be made for any festival, this Nariyal Vadi can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for 4-5 days, ready to be relished by your family, friends and guests!

You can also try your hand at making other mithai like Anjeer Halwa or Kaju Kopra Sheera .
