Kashata. Coconut Candy.

Kashata is a tasty treat that I loved while growing up. Originating from Kenya’s coastal area, this sweet has made its way inland and is a beloved treat to many.

Kashata is either made with coconut or peanut. This here is kashata ya nazi. Nazi is Swahili for coconut and njugu is Swahili for peanut.

I prefer the coconut version to the peanut one.

Dessicated coconut, sugar, cardamom and food color are all you need, plus a bit of patience.

You can use any food color you prefer.

They are so good, don’t blame me if you cannot get enough of them!

Below is the recipe card.
