Prep time:2 Minutes
Cook time:10 Minutes
Total time:12 Minutes
Desiccated coconut or freshly scrapped coconut- 1 cup
Heat 2 tsp of ghee in a kadai.Add the dessicated coconut and roast for 2-3 minutes in low flame till u get a nice aroma.
Now add milk and stir well till all the milk is absorbed by coconut.
After the mixture thickens,add sugar and mix well.Sugar melts and the mixture becomes a semi solid paste.
Keep mixing in medium flame till all the sugar is well combined with coconut and the mixture leaves the sides of the pan.Take a small piece and try to roll a ball.If u are able to do it,the mixture is ready.Add cardamom powder,mix it and switch off the flame.
When the mixture becomes warm,grease ur hands with a drop of ghee and make balls. Immediately roll in the desiccated coconut.Else it wont stick.Arrange the ladoos in a plate.Stays good for 2-3 days when refrigerated.
If u want to make a quicker version,use condensed milk in place of milk and sugar.The ratio of dessicated coconut and condensed milk should be 1:1.
Its better to use mature ones if u want to use fresh coconuts.scrape the white part & use it instead of desiccated coconut.In that case,fry coconut for more time till all the moisture completely goes off !
Do not keep the mixture for long time in flame as it changes the color of balls.
Also stay nearby and complete this sweet.U can finish it within 10 minutes.
Initially the balls will be yellow in color.After u coat them in coconut,its color changes to half white.
