Coconut Ladoo

>> Wednesday, December 29, 2010

Two more days...... Wow! Time flies at the blink of an eye and you never feel like that... We must enjoy each and every moment.. no matter what happens. Coz the time passed now, will never return back... "Time and Tide, never waits for none". Thats very true! So, guys "Live Life King Size!!!" Even I believe, life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. So, its better "Live Love & Laugh".

Hey Guys! wanna let u know that we are planning to spend our New Year Eve at SFO.. I'm very excited... But as I'm not a party animal, so may be we will celebrate New Year at Golden Gate, holding each others hand, watching fire works and remembering all those good moments we had in the whole year.. Thats kinda romantic!! Woooooooow..

Well dreams apart... :D


This post is on "Coconut Ladoo" and if you are a fan of Ladoo then this one is a very quick recipe, provided all the ingredients are available with you.. :D
We made this on Diwali, I thought to add some creativity and I was quite happy with the outcome. But for my younger brother, they looked like "Eyeballs". Whatever!! Believe me, they taste "Yum!"..

So here we go with the recipe.

Ingredients:

1-1/2 cup dessicated coconut
1 can condensed milk
1 tsp cardamom powder
1 tsp clarified butter ( ghee)
1 pinch of food color
raisins, to garnish (optional)


Method:

Fry the coconut with ghee until its just about to get slightly brown. This is just to remove the raw flavour. You can skip this step as well. Add condensed milk to the coconut mixture and cook at medium-low flame.

Stir until the mixture leaves the side of pan. This may take about 5-7 mins. In between add a pinch of food color. Mix well.


Let the mixture cool down for sometime. When reaches appropriate temperature to work with, start rolling into small ladoos. Apply oil or butter on hands, while working. This will prevent the mixture to stick to hands and ladoo will come in perfect texture.

Top the ladoos with raisins. That's for garnishing. You can use dry nuts too. Even if don't want to garnish, then too it will be yummy.

Refrigerate ladoos for sometime and then serve. This will help the ladoos to retain its shape.
