Gurudi (also called gurundi) is a crispy Nigerian coconut biscuit. It is very popular in the south-western parts of the country and enjoyed by all.
If you grew up or are presently in Nigeria, and wondering what Gurudi is, I can assure you that you might have either tasted or seen the branded and packaged version known as '' Fun time Coconut Chips'' (a UAC product).
It is actually made with a combination of finely grated coconuts, sugar and cassava starch(tapioca). Here's how to prepare the crispy chewy snack.
Ingredients for Gurundi (gurudi)
*1 large Whole coconut (finely grated)
* 80 grams Cassava starch(tapioca starch) (Use potato starch/corn starch as a substitute)
* 64 grams (Half cup) Sugar
* A pinch of nutmeg
Note: one of our fans swears that you can also make use of plain flour, but I can't vouch for it yet.
* If you can't get finely grated coconut.
Crack open the whole coconut and using a small knife, pry out the coconut meat and grate or blend it to a fine mix.
* In a bowl, Mix the coconut, the starch, nutmeg and sugar together. Mix thoroughly and
Add a little water to form the dough into a ball.
Flatten out the dough thinly and place it on a baking tray lined with baking sheets or greased with butter.
Next, cut the dough into big 6 by 6 cm squares and then bake in a preheated oven at 302° F(150° C ) for 15 to 25 minutes.
* When the biscuits are brown and hardened a bit. Take it out to cool completely.
This biscuits will get harder as it cools. Then store in an airtight container and enjoy.
