Method of preparation
Roast the coconut scraping till it becomes dry without water content. Grate all the vegetables and add them in the boiled milk. When they are boil-cooked, add sugar and ghee and mix them well. When you find that the water content is completely evaporated add the nuts and kismis and mix them well. When the mix is cooled make it into plum-size small globules. Then apply the roasted coconut on the globules. Now the vegetable sweet balls are ready for tasting.
