Naralachi Wadi (coconut Fudge)

As a kid, Naralachi Wadi was one of my favorite Indian sweets. My grandmother prepared these wadis during Diwali and on other special occassions. This was my first attempt making coconut sweets at home without any help. Suprisingly, they turned out great. This is one of the most easiest Indian dessert I have prepared without any hassel and without too many ingredients. Simple yet full of flavor
