    desiccated coconut


  1. Take a non-stick pan, and add ghee in it. Once slightly hot, add 2 cups of desiccated coconut. Keep stirring continuously, so that the coconut doesn't burn. Let it cook for 2-3 mins on medium flame.

  2. After cooking for 2-3 mins, add milk to it and let it cook for 2-3 mins while continuously stirring on medium flame.

  3. After cooking with milk, add sugar to the pan and keep stirring continuously on medium flame.

  4. Keep stirring the entire mixture continuously on medium flame, until it starts thickening and comes all together. Usually takes about 10-15 mins. Make sure the entire milk is boiled and you should have a thick consistency. At that point turn off the flame and add cardamom powder and stir well. Take the pan off the flame and let the mixture sit until it gets to room temperature.

  5. Once it gets to room temperature, make small balls of the mix and roll them in the leftover 1/2 cup desiccated coconut.
