7 Cups Cake/7 cups sweet

7 cups cake/7 cups sweet is a traditional sweet usually made for Diwali.

Last year,I tried this sweet for the first time and it came out too good.
This year,I made this for a potluck party.


Besan/Gram Dal flour - 1 cup

Grated coconut - 1 cup(only the white part)

Ghee/clarified butter - 1 cup (slightly melt it)

Boiled ,cooled Milk - 1 cup

Sugar - 3 cups(But can be reduced to 2 1/2 to 2 3/4 cup)


Mix all the ingredients in a bowl.Grease a plate with ghee.Keep a bowl of water ready for testing the consistency.

In a hard bottomed vessel,start heating the mixture on a medium-high heat.

The mixture will become watery at first and then will begin to boil.

Reduce the heat to medium.

Keep on stirring so that the mixture will not get burnt at the bottom.

After some time,The mixture will start to froth and will start leaving the sides of pan.Take a small amount and put in into the bowl of water and try to roll it into a bowl.

If you are able to roll into a soft ball,then it has reached the right consistency.

Transfer into the greased plate.Level with a greased bowl.

After 10 minutes, cut into square shapes.

Store in airtight container.
