Who doesn’t love quick and easy recipes? These little bites are made in less than half an hour, simple ingredients yet they look like you have spent ages making them. It is one of many of my favourite recipes which I have been making for a few years. Whether you gift them, serve them or offer as Prashad, you will get “Wow” and “ooh”, just what you want to hear. So firstly, this post was meant to be up at the beginning of Navratri however, as we all know things don’t always go to plan, however, all is not lost. These can be made for any occasion or personal consumption. I love the vibrant green from pistachios and deep red from jewelled cranberries, the flavours pair well together and a bit of cardamom just adds that dept of flavour. Coconut is my all time favourite since a young age, whether it’s fresh or dessicated I’ll always find a good use for them in a recipe.
