SOOJI COCONUT SWEET
This is an old Anglo-Indian favourite. Made mostly at Christmas time and even at other times as well. The roasted sooji (Semolina) gives a nice robust taste to the Coconut Sweet.
Makes 30 pieces    
Ingredients
2 cups grated coconut                           
1 cup roasted fine soogi / semolina
3 cups sugar                                         
1 cup milk
½ cup condensed milk                           
1 teaspoon ghee
½ teaspoon vanilla essence                  
½ teaspoon food colour either pink or green
Roast the semolina with one teaspoon ghee till it gives out a nice aroma. Remove from heat and keep aside.
Melt the sugar with the milk and condensed milk in a thick bottomed vessel. 
Add the grated coconut and mix well. Cook till the coconut is soft. 
Add the semolina, essence, food colour and ghee and mix well. 
Simmer on low heat till the mixture becomes thick and leaves the sides of the vessel. 
Pour on to a greased plate and cut into squares.
