I guess every one of us must have tasted this delicacy at sometime in our life and must have instantly fallen in love for the coconut interior and soft chewy exterior and yes,,I'm no exception...I vaguely remember eating it as a child in famous iyengar bakery but as time passes by,it somehow took back seat and I haven't tasted in the past few years...I suddenly remembered when I saw it on some tv show and gave a try...it got finished pretty soon and was delicious....
