3 oz part skim ricotta cheese
1/4 cup nonfat dry milk
1/4 cup sugar; plus 1 tablespoon
1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut

Directions: How to Cook Coconut Sweets (Nariyal Barfi)

Grease an 88 inch square pan. Set aside. In a large, nonstick fry pan heat ricotta cheese on medium heat. Add milk powder and stir to mix thoroughly. Cook for 12-15 minutes until most of the liquid is evaporated. Stir frequently to avoid sticking or burning on the bottom. Add sugar and stir. The ricotta cheese mixture will become liquid again. Cook for another 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the coconut and mix thoroughly. Continue to cook for 3-5 minutes. The mixture should be quite thick. Pour the mixture into the greased pan and press the mixture with a spatula. Cut into 11 inch diamond shapes. The mixture sets as it cools. Cool completely before removing from the pan.
