Coconut Laddoo with a rava twist ( Diwali encounter)

 My Diwali sweets ends with this special sweet.I was abt to prepare  coconut burfi,but matters changed when my syrup got me into  tragedy.So i gave a twist by adding rava to the sweet.Believe me it tasted awsome.When i gave to my friends,they said it remainded there childhood days,where we get these rava-coconut laddoo from sonpappadi vendor.I was thrilled to hear these comments as it was abt to be wasted.From now on, my perception abt cooking got a new turn.The moral is"We can adjust anything and form a new dish".It was a thrilling - wonderful experience and i shud thank saras for giving me valuable ideas.
