When a recipe specifies only 4 ingredients and 4 steps, one would deem it as easy peasy. Or so I thought about this Kashata recipe (a street food from Tanzania). The process started smoothly and smelling wonderfully when the desiccated coconut and peanuts hit the pan to bind with the caramel. The whole cooking process didn’t smell of disaster until the end – the moment I tried to shape the mixture into a walnut-sized ball. As you can see from the photos, I could only manage to shape about 3 balls and the rest of the mixture wasn’t shapeable for being far too dry.
