Nariyal Badaam Ladoo

BM # 62
Week :1 , Day: 1
Theme: Cooking with Coconut

For this week I have picked the theme cooking with coconut.I am very fond of coconut and like it in any form.The fresh coconut is the best but I don't mind the dried one too. The South Indians use it in their daily diets but for we North Indians , we use it for poojas or sweets. With cooking going international the coconut milk is what I use most, but unlike my blogging friends I buy ready tetra packs.

Coming to the very first day of this week I have coconut ladoos. These ladoos are made from fresh coconut and almonds. These are one of the best ladoos that I have made, they just melt in the mouth.

Are you guys wondering..Vaishali and ladoos...well they are my favorite !

Nareyal Badaam ke Ladoo
1 cup fresh coconut, grated
1 cup milk
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 tsp Cardamon powder
1/2 cup almonds, powdered

Add the grated coconut and Saute for a couple of minutes,
Add milk and cook till all milk is absorbed.

Let cool a little and then make ladoos , garnishing with almonds and pistachios.
