Fresh Coconut and Jaggery Barfi

This is a very delicious sweet made with fresh coconut and jaggery. The combination of fresh coconut, jaggery and cardamom powder is a perfect one! This can be served during upvas. Instead of sugar, I tried this with jaggery and it turned out well. We all loved it. Try it out!

Coconut is a tropical fruit that is rich in protein.The meat of the coconut is very good in destroying intestinal parasites that we get from eating infected food. 

Jaggery is a rich source of iron.It also contains many minerals salts not found in ordinary sugar. Indian Ayurvedic medicine considers jaggery to be a wholesome sugar beneficial to health. Ayurveda also considers jaggery to be beneficial in treating throat and lung infections.
