Let us read
"Ammachi! Could we make coconut barfi, Sabari asked.
"Please?", he asked.
"Ha ha ha! Only if you help me make it!" replied Ammachi.
"YAY!", said Sabari excitedly.
"Ready?" shouted Sabari.
"Ready!" said Ammachi after sitting on the seat tied to the pulley.
"We will only pick ripe coconuts, okay? The ones that are brown all over."
"Pull me up! Up! Up! And Up!"
"Now, watch out! Here they come!
" WHOOSH! THUD!
"Now, let us take the husk off!"
CRANK! The lever of the machine rang!
This was Sabari's tummy not the lever. Ammachi giggled.
"Then we crack the shell with the cleaver. Like THIS!"
"And grate the fruit!"
"Toss it into the pan with sugar and all the other things!" said Ammachi.
"It smells SO good, Ammachi!" said Sabari.
"Then we pour it all out on to a tray. Let us wait for it to cool."
"Now cut it into neat little pieces! YAY! Our coconut barfi is ready to eat."
"YUM! Thank you Ammachi."
