Coconut Semolina Barfi

Coconut semolina barfi is a delicious melt in mouth kind fudge made with fine semolina and desiccated coconut that will surely take your taste buds to a different level.

This week I am going to make other’s Day Sweet recipes as it is around the corner in India. We already had celebrated Mother’s day here in March and when I called my mom and mom in law to wish they were really amazed and surprised. Then I had to explain to them that it is celebrated in different months around the world.

My mom is still in recovery and we all are really thankful to God that the worst has passed. For few months we were all worried sick and praying to God for her good beings. That was the time I missed her the most and it really freaked me out the thought of losing her. I guess that was the time which realised us the importance of her being in our life.

My younger brother who would have never listened and always being careless became the most responsible son to, my mother. He is even started cooking healthy alkaline diet for her. Anyways that being said, the barfis came out super soft and delicious and it really would make a wonderful mother’s day treat to surprise your mums.
