Sweet Upwas Pattice/ Potato-Coconut Sweet Pattice

Last week, "M' was away on a tour and like always... me and the kids were bored. I had invited a friend for lunch and keep us company. She had a upwas/ fast on that day.Now, I haven't  experimented much with Upwas food....as I hardly keep any Upwas.But I LOVE Upwas food..Sago Khichadi, Potato peanut bhaji, Sweet potato kees.....I love all that!! As a kid..I would wait impatiently for my mom to keep Upwas so that I could get to eat all of these!!
That day...I did try some different dishes...On the menu was.....Sweet Potato kees, Varyachya tandul dosa with peanut chutney,Kutchi beer (http://www.my-kitchens-aroma.blogspot.com/2012/10/sizzle-from-guest-kitchen-guest-pooja.html) and these Sweet tasting Potato pattice stuffed with coconut-cashews and raisin filling.It was a fulfilling, delicious and satisfying meal from start to finish!!
