Instructions
  1. In a non stick pan or heavy bottomed steel pan, on a low flame, toast the desiccated coconut for 1 minute until slightly aromatic. Remove 3 tablespoons of the coconut in a flat dish.
  2. To the remaining coconut in the pan, add the green cardamom / elaichi powder, milk powder and almost all the condensed milk, reserving 4-5 tbsp as you may not need all of it.
  3. On a low flame, stir them all together. In 2-3 minutes, they will come together to a ball that doesnt stick to the sides.
  4. Grease palm with a few drops of ghee. Divide fudge into 24 portions and roll each into a ball. Roll the ball in the plate with desiccated coconut.
  5. Do this for all 24 laddoos and then refrigerate them in an airtight container, but not before eating a couple of them while they are still warm and gooey.
  6. To impress the kids, you can place each laddoo in a colourful cupcake liner and may be add a few sprinkles over the top!
Recipe Notes

In Hindi, this is called Nariyal ka burada. If you don’t find it, use fresh coconut, or frozen coconut scrapings. Make sure they are unsweetened though.

I’ve tried it without milkpowder and it turns out just fine. You may reduce the condensed milk by another 2-3 tbsp, and add a little more if mixture is too dry.

With the leftover condensed milk, try my recipe for Vietnamese Iced Coffee, another addictive thing!!
