Break the gur/jaggery into small pieces and mix well with the scraped coconut and keep aside. Now heat a pan and add this coconut-jaggery mix and let the jaggery melt properly.
Stir continuously till the the mixture becomes dry and very sticky (this may take some time as the mix needs to be dry and the jaggery needs to get rid of any water that it has while continuously stiring).
