Coconut Laddu

I found the inspiration to make Coconut Laddus after seeing a picture online. It was from Kamini's blog. The view of the Laddus were so tempting I decided to make them. Thanks Kamini for sharing the recipe.

Ingredients: -
1 tbsp ghee
2 cups freshly grated coconut
1/2 cup dried powdered coconut
1/2 tsp cardamom powder
1 tin Milkmaid/condensed milk

Method: -
1. In a heavy bottomed pan, add ghee & then fresh coconut gratings. Roast for a minute.
2. Add Milk maid.
3. Cook over low flame mixing it continuously for about 4-5 minutes. The coconut cooks in the condensed milk.
4. Add cardamom powder.
5. When the mixture leaves the sides of the pan, remove from flame & let it cool down for about 5-10 minutes.
6. Apply ghee on your palm & shape the mixture into small laddus.
7. In a cup, add dried coconut & roll each laddu in it, so that the dry powder coats well onto the laddu.

One can garnish the laddus with colored coconut scrappings (as Kamini has done) or with roasted almonds or cashew nuts.
