I made this last week. You wont believe it, to make this ladoo it wont even take hardly full 15 mins!!!!... wow!! isnt that easy... especially when you have guests over for lunch or dinner uninvited ;)....
I have been a little slow in the race of blogging.. Its going to be one year and i have reached only the 100th post :(.. But then thinking on the positive side, i did post 100 recipes!!! wow!!! i cant believe i really know 100 recipes...he he he... i still remember those first days of cooking..Though i knew how to cook a bit, i always was bad at trying new ones as i never got the idea how the flavour blends..now i wont tell i m an expert. But still will tell i know a little of it. Thanks to all my bloggy friends for being my support and inspiring me with your comments. I know few of my friends do try and tell me how it went. Friends, if you try and if the outcome is bad or good, plz do post on the commentary. I would love to see it (esp if it successful) and also others will know how it turned out :)...
Plz bear with me for the pics..I simply couldnt resist myself uploading all of them ;)..
Now enough of my BLAH BLAH ;).. coming to the recipe...
Coconut grated - 2.5 cups + 1 cup for covering
Condensed Milk - 1 tin (390 gms)
Cardamom Powder - 2 liberal Pinch
Vanilla Essence - 1 drop (optional)
Ina a pan add in the 2.5 cups of coconut and for 1-2 min roast over low flame. Dont let the coconut to turn brown. Its just for the raw taste to go. Add in the condensed milk, cardamom powder and mix till the mixture starts coming off the side of the pan. Add in the essence and switch off flame for the mix to cool down. When the mix is warm, roll small balls and roll the laddu in the 1 cup of grated coconut and garnish with rasins. Enjoy cold or warm :)
You can powder the 1 cup coconut used for rolling for more definite look. (My grinder is out of order and couldnt do in that way :( )
