Add the sugar and dissolve over low heat.
Then stir in the coconut and continue cooking and stirring until the mixture is very thick.
Stir in the rose water.
Turn half the mixture into a greased shallow dish or tin.
Add the colouring to the remaining mixture, tinting it a pale pink colour.
Then spread on top of the white layer in the tin.
