Delicious coconut balls is a true relish for sweet lovers. It has the rich flavor of coconut and cardamon. Easy to prepare sweet it hardly takes 10 minutes to put together. It is best when served warm and fresh. One of my friend loves it as a chilled dessert. Here is the recipe.
Shredded Coconut- 2 cups
Sweet Condensed milk- 1 cup
Milk- 1/2 cup
Sugar - if you need extra sweetness
Cardamon powder- 1/2 tsp
Ghee- 2 tsp
Cashew nuts chopped- 2 tsp
Sweetened coconut powder- 1/4 cup
Heat a heavy bottom pan and add ghee and coconut. Roast them for a few seconds till there is a slight change in color. Do not allow the coconut to change color to brown. Add in half cup of milk and allow to cook. Now add in the condensed milk and cardamon and stir well. From a loose mass the mixture will get thick and form a single mass. Continuously stir in till the mixture leaves the edges of the pan. Spread it on a greased tray and allow to cool a bit or till it is safe to handle. make small balls or ladoos and roll on coconut powder and then allow to cool off completely.
