Reviewed Coconut Toffee

I have made coconut burfe/halva before. THe recipe is there in all Indian cookbooks.
I liked the way she described the sugar ball time in water. However, theories apart and onto the real deal - the ratio of sugar to coconut is very high in Aarti's recipe. As a result, the toffee or whatever name Aarti has for this, falls apart very easily...

Was there some double entendre in the previous review, I wonder.... :)

I did not like this dish. NO flavor, none...absolutely.

To Neelarj - are you flaunting your own stolen recipe or reviewing Aarti's?

Well, speaking of recipes, I really liked the lemongrass chai recipe someone has posted. I tried that out. I did not like Aarti's chai recipe. It had too many things going on for the flavor and too much honey! I put brown cane sugar in my lemongrass tea...

okay tasting. No spectacular flavors in this one.
Aarti, get your own new recipes instead of 'Mums this' and 'Mums that' dishes.

Blech...
I have tasted better quinoa pilafs than this.
Even Whole Foods deli section had an awesome quinoa pilaf, rich and vibrant with veggies, nuts and no mealy, mouldy dried fruit to mess up the taste!

Aarti's recipe also had no heat element! Shame that this is being called an Indian-flavored dish aka pilaf....
