* I have mentioned 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup water because if you use shredded coconut then 1/4 cup water is required.If you are using dry dessicated coconut then add 1/2 cup water as it is too dry.I have used dry dessicated coconut.
* If you're using shredded coconut then try to leave out the brown portion when scraping as it will not give a pure white color.
* You can pulse the shredded coconut once or twice to blend with the sugar completely.
