To make caramel condensed milk-You can buy store brought caramel flavored condensed milk for this recipe or make at home by boiling condensed milk. Place sealed condensed milk tin in a five quart pan and cover with water.Make sure that the tin is completely submerged under water. Boil this in medium heat for about one and half hours. Add more water  if necessary and make sure the tin is always  submerged under water. After one and half hours remove the tin from the boiling water and allow to cool down completely ( the content will be really hot and is not safe to open at this stage). When complete cool open the tin with a can opener. If you like to make it dark and rich like dulce de leche/toffee continue cooking for 2 1/2-3 hours.

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 caramel condensed milk  stir well. Cook in medium for 4-5 minutes.The mixture will get thick and form a single mass . Continuously stir  till the mixture leaves the edges of the pan Add cardamom powder and one tsp of ghee.Transfer this into a  tray (grease the tray with a few drops of ghee) and allow to cool till it is safe to handle. Make small balls or ladoos and roll on shredded coconut  and then allow to cool off completely.
