Nariyal ka ladoo

Nariyal ka ladoo or Coconut ladoo is very simple and popular dish that you can make quickly for the upcoming Diwali festival.

Ingredients:
Ghee (2 tsp)
Cashew Nuts(few)
Coconut(freshly grated of half coconut)
Green cardamom(a pinch)
Condensed milk(3 tbsp)
Sugar(1 tsp or more for additional sweetness)


Method:
Heat a pan, add ghee and cashew nuts. Roast the cashew nut till light golden brown in color.
Once light golden brown in color, switch off the flame and take out the cashew nut in a separate bowl and keep it aside.
Now, into the same pan, add the freshly grated coconut of half coconut and roast in slow flame.
Saute in slow flame till the aroma of the coconut spreads and will start to turn light golden brown in color.
Once it turns light golden brown in color, add a pinch of cardamom powder and mix well.
Pour in the condensed milk and mix well.
Add sugar as per your taste. I have added 1 tsp of sugar and not more as the condensed milk has sweetness in it.
Add the sugar whil the mixture is still warm so that the sugar can easily melt. Once it cools down, the mixture will solidify by itself.
When the mixture is still warm, give it the shape of ladoo.
Take a small portion of the mixture and give it a nice ladoo shape of lemon size.
Now take the roasted cashewnuts and top it on the ladoo. Take one cashewnut and gently press it on the top of the ladoo.
Do the same with rest of the ladoos.
Once the ladoo cools, the sugar in it will crystallize and become solid.
You can make upto 5 ladoos if you follow the measurement accurately.
There you go, Nariyal ka ladoo or coconut is now ready to be served.
