Diwali Special - Coconut Ladoos

May this festival of light bring brightness & lots of happiness in each one's life... Happy Diwali :))

It's the time of celebration and enjoyment for most of the Indians.. and celebration calls for sweets...Sharing the quick and easy (easiest actually) recipe for COCONUT LADOOS... and delicious too...

Condensed Milk - 1/2 of a can [enough for 15-20 ladoos]
Coconut (scrapped) - 1.5
Cardamom seeds (powdered)  - 1/2 teaspoon
Almonds - handful

1. Scrap 2 fresh coconuts. Further grind the coconut shreds in a grinder/ mixie so as to have a thin course powder.

2. In a heavy bottom pan, heat 1/2 a can of condensed milk till it starts to boil. Add the scrapped coconut and keep stirring continously. (the mixture should be very tight  - you can adjust the amount of coconut depending on the consistency of the final mixture)

3. Once the mixture gets a thick consistency, add powdered cardamom and mix well.

4. Remove from flame and let it cool. As the mixture cools down a bit, make ladoos with your hand and garnish each one with an almond. (the mixture should be warm else giving it a round shape would be tuff)

Coconut Ladoos are ready to serve :)

This recipe is linked to Priya's Veggie/Fruit a Month - Coconut event. It's Culinary Vibe's first ever participation in an event.. and am excited :))

PS - there are people like me, who are scared of taking a small lump of the warm mixture in the hand - so u need a friend like i do to shape the ladoos .. thus, dedicating this post to Leena .. my cutest friend..tuff to manage widout honestly .. (not just while making ladoos ;) )

Thanx sweety...
