Dodol |Dhodal A favourite Goan sweet . . .
What is dodol? 

Dodol or dhodal is a rich, jelly like sweetmeat of Malay origins.
Dodol is a sweet toffee-like confection, popular in Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Sri Lanka and Burma, where it is called mont kalama. 

It is made with coconut milk, jaggery, and rice flour, and is sticky, thick and sweet. It is also popular among the Roman Catholics from the west coastal Indian state of Goa. It is common fare on the streets of Zanzibar, sold as halva. Dodol has also made its way to some Middle Eastern countries, including Iran.
Many feel that Dodol is so soft, sweet in texture like a pudding that
it melts in the mouth.
