  1. Hi Manjula – I love your recipes – thank you for sharing them!

    How do you shred your carrots to get them so thin? Even with the food processor, I cannot get them like that. Any tips?

    Also…do you think coconut milk / coconut cream might work instead of milk/cream?

  2. Hi, Can i store these barfi’s and serve after 2 days? If yes, whats the best way to store them? Refrigerate or leave them outside.? Weather is pleasant here. Not so humid
