Ingredients for Coconut Halwa Recipe
Desiccated coconut is flaked or shredded coconut flesh that has been dried.
Cashews contain a lot of starch, which will thicken sauces just like flour and potatoes do. The use of cashews over flour, for example, has the advantage of adding a lot of flavour to the sauce.
Raisins are dried grapes. These are grown in many parts of the world and can be eaten raw or cooked, baked, or brewed.
Cardamom Powder is an all-natural spice that can be used to sweeten dishes as well as flavour coffee and tea. It is also used in traditional Indian and Middle Eastern cooking, as well as Scandinavian baking.
