The final day of Diwali celebration is called the ÔÇ£Bhai DoojÔÇØ. On┬á this day, sisters apply tika on the forehead of their brothers and┬á brothers in return bless their sisters and promise to protect them throughout┬á life. It is a very sacred day for all brothers and sisters. I miss this festival and my brother on this day because I stay away from them……wish on all the festivals to be close to my entire family and friends but may be not that easy in today busy corporate world with job commitments etc…..
When we were kids, I remember we really use to look forward to this day as I use to get lots of gifts from by brothers . With the ongoing Diwali fever, this day would also add a lot to the overall excitement in the family. Meeting up with all the cousins, having meals together, playing┬áand enjoying all day long was a different experience all together and good old days memories.
Now back to my Coconut Ladoos┬áthat I prepared today morning, would love to share in my journal for my friends and everyone who makes me feel great by stopping by and going through my recipes, it makes me feel special!! These ladoos┬áare a traditional Indian Dessert, Coconut is the most auspicious fruit for Indian and is used in all ceremonies. These ladoos are easy to make and taste too good.
- Grated fresh coconut – 1 cup
- Milk – 3 cups
- Sugar – 1/2 cup
- Coconut Powder for rolling the ladoos
- Cardamom Powder – 1/4 teaspoon
Take a heavy bottom pan and boil milk┬áalong with the grated coconut,after first boil lower the flame and let it cook on low flame. Keep cooking it on low flame till the coconut absorbs the entire milk and gets soft. This will take about 40 minutes or more. After this add the cardamom powder along with sugar to it and stir well.
Cook for another 7 minutes┬átill sugar┬áalso gets dissolved. Switch off the flame and keep aside for 10 minutes┬átill the mixture cools a little. The mixture should not be hot while you make the ladoos┬áand it should┬ábe lukewarm. Grease your┬ápalms┬áwith ghee and make small lemon size┬áballs from it. Roll these ladoos on the dry coconut powder and coat them with it.
Your delicious coconut ladoos are ready to serve.
Enjoy these with your loved ones!!
