Goan Sweet Khatkhati Recipe (Coconut Candy)

Goan Sweet Khatkhati Recipe (Coconut Candy)

Monday, 25 July 2016 00:30

Goan Sweet Khatkhati is a simple and quick sweet, or you can say coconut candy, prepared by melting Jaggery (Panela) and adding in, fresh or dry shredded coconut, roasted sesame seeds and some crushed peanuts or cashew nuts. The jaggery used in Goa(India) for such type of dessert is called chiki god, which is a sticky kind of jaggery available in India. You can store the prepared Khatkhati pieces in an airtight container and finish it within 2 weeks. Sometimes if you overheat the jaggery after it melts, Khatkhati becomes very hard after cooling down. But don’t worry about it, you can microwave them for 15-20 seconds just before eating. I enjoy the hard type of Khatkhati, so I cooked my jaggery a bit longer. Serve Goan Sweet Khatkhati on its own on special occasions to your friends and family.
