    • Thanks, Aruna 🙂 Perhaps because I have been listening to the same set of playlists the last couple of months, with hour long instrumental music such as that of Hari Prasad Chaurasia, I have not thought of sharing them online as before 😉

  1. How unique! How delicious it must be with the goodness of toasted coconut and jaggery! Wish I could taste it. Doesn’t the jaggery melt upon baking? Saving the recipe! Thanks for sharing it with us here at the Fiesta Friday!

    • Thanks, Suchitra. The mix of toasted coconut and jaggery in a cookie is delicious. And, no, the jaggery does not melt, just becomes a little moist during the baking.

    • I received both your comments, Suchitra. Didn’t check my blog this weekend until now. Thanks for co-hosting Fiesta Friday this week! 🙂
