We prepare sweets and other vegetarian food for this festival. I am preparing coconut ladoos, as sweet start to Navratri.
It is very easy and can be made by using coconut, condensed milk and ghee.
|Heat ghee add coconut|
|Add condensed milk|
|Add cardamom powder and keep stirring|
|Remove the coconut mixture and allow to cool few minutes|
1.5 cups of fresh shredded coconut (Can use frozen coconut available in Indian stores)
2 tsp ghee
2 tsp powdered small cardamom
1/4 cup powdered dry coconut for coating
1/2 cup condensed milk
1.Heat ghee in a medium kadai. Add thawed fresh coconut, stir for few minutes. Do not brown the coconut.
2.Add cardamom powder, and condensed milk, keep stirring till all the mixture comes together. As mixture leaves sides of pan, close burner.
3.Allow mixture to cool.
4.Rub a little ghee on palms of your hand, and take a spoonful of mixture to make small balls of ladoos. Roll prepared ladoos in dried coconut to coat the surface.
5.If you want you can add a dry fruit to garnish the ready coconut ladoos.
Enjoy and store remaining ladoos in an air tight container or refrigerate to enjoy later.
