Both the sweets will taste same but identified with different names... In our home, Sree likes Coconut ladoo and I'm a fan of Barfi... ;)
So lets move on to the recipe!
2 cups dessicated coconut
1-1/2 cups Condensed milk
1 tsp cardamom powder
1 tsp clarified butter ( ghee)
1 pinch of food color (I've used orange and green)
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.
Grease a 8-inch cake pan or a plate of same size with ghee. Now pour the mixture onto the plate. Pat it gently to make the top surface even.
Refrigerate it for 1 hr. Now, cut it into desired shapes.. I prefer square ones!
Note: If you want, you can add 200 gms Khoya instead of condensed milk. But add 400 gms sugar to the mixture.
