  5. Interesting to know about Qumbe because we also make them here in India. Coconut bars are made from sugar or jaggery (brown sugar/molases sugar/Panela in Latin America) both of them have varied taste and they are yummy. Those bars in the pic are quite tempting. Eid Mubarak to you and your family :)
