    Hi,If you are using sugar instead of jagegry, then you probably need a little more quantity of sugar than as mentioned in the case of jagegry. But, then it all depends on how sweet you want to make the filling. But, there is only one glitch. Sugar tends to burn out very easily, so you better mix the sugar and coconut together and then place the pan over a simmering flame. Just keep it for a little while till the coconut changes color. If you are using the frozen coconut, there is no problem as I have tried that too and it tastes the same. Just defrost the coconut before you use it. Happy Sankranti.
