Coconut Laddu with New Year Wishes!



Wish you all a very very Happy New Year and let's start this year with a sweet!




My mom use to prepare this laddu in my childhood days. I love it too much! After I got married, I haven’t try out this sweet. When I started sweet event, Ujwala Mohan came out with this recipe and she remembered my childhood days. Thanks a lot to her for providing an opportunity to prepare this laddu. When I started to prepare it in one fine evening, my young kiddo got much interest and I told him that am going to prepare laddus for him. He started to tell give me laddu from the moment I started to grate laddu, though he don’t know how actually laddu will be. So to control his eagerness for a while, I gave him a spoon of milkmaid and he licked it and said “WOW! Super!”

When I finished doing laddus, I gave him a small piece and he said laddu is super. When his dad returned to home from his office, he told him how I prepared laddus. He did in action that he is frying and rolling out the laddus. Really it’s a very good moment. Lets come to the recipe now.

Ingredients:

Fresh Coconut – 1 (finely grate it)
Desiccated Coconut / Dried Powdered Coconut / Thuruviya Kopparai Thengaai – 12 tbsp
Cardamom Powder – ½ tsp
Condensed Milk / Milkmaid – ½ tin (adjust according to the sweetness you require)
Ghee – 1 tbsp

Cooking Instructions:



Add 1 tbsp of ghee in a wide pan and fry the grated fresh coconut for 4 minutes in a simmer flame. Add milkmaid and cardamom powder to it now slowly and cook in a simmer flame for 5 to 7 minutes. At this time the mixture will start to leave the sides of the pan. Switch off the flame now. Let the mixture to cool down for few minutes.

Now shape the mixture into small laddus and roll out each ball in the desiccated coconut. Coconut Laddu is ready to serve.
