This is a fairly ancient Gujarati sweet, traditionally made using fresh coconut and milk that has been reduced for hours.

As coconut trees don't readily grow where I live now, and there's no need to spend hours reducing your own milk, we make this with desiccated coconut and condensed milk—two readily available pantry ingredients.

What's even more satisfying is that the fudge can be made within minutes (depending on your ball-rolling skills) and looks impressive, so it will stand you in good stead for last-minute dinners, bring-a-thing to work days, picnics, bribes, and village fête offerings.
