Title: Coconut sweets (nariyal barfi)
Yield: 4 Servings
3 oz Part skim ricotta cheese
1/4 c Nonfat dry milk
1/4 c Sugar; plus 1 tablespoon
1/4 c Unsweetened shredded coconut
Grease an 8×8 inch square pan. Set aside. In a large, nonstick fry
pan heat ricotta cheese on medium heat. Add milk powder and stir to
mix thoroughly. Cook for 12-15 minutes until most of the liquid is
evaporated. Stir frequently to avoid sticking or burning on the
bottom. Add sugar and stir. The ricotta cheese mixture will become
liquid again. Cook for another 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add
the coconut and mix thoroughly. Continue to cook for 3-5 minutes. The
mixture should be quite thick. Pour the mixture into the greased pan
and press the mixture with a spatula. Cut into 1×1 inch diamond
shapes. The mixture sets as it cools. Cool completely before removing
from the pan.
