KaayVade (coconut jaggery vada)

KaayVade made with coconut and jaggery is a very popular dish from karnataka state in India. My mom always made this as one of the sweets during diwali or other festivals. Here I have my mom’s recipe listed with all the details. This is a make ahead sweet dish, has a shelf life for about a week, if not eaten up by then 😉
