Bengali Narkoler Nadu

    1 hour 5 mins

    This is a coconut, khoya mouth-watering sweet no one can resist. You'll never guess from its taste how easy it is to make! Narkoler nadu is very commonly used for pujas as a prasad and for me it is associated with fond memories of childhood. As usual there are many variations, but this is how it is made in our family.
