Preparation Time: 40 minutes
- 1 teaspoon ghee
- 2 cups shredded coconut
- 1 cup milk, or coconut milk*
- 3/4 cup powdered sugar
- 1/2 cup dry fruit powder**
- 1 teaspoon cardamom powder
- golden raisins for garnishing
In a saucepan, melt ghee on medium-high heat, when it melts add shredded coconut, milk and sugar. Keep stirring until milk is absorbed. Continue cooking on medium-high heat until the mixture becomes dry, about 10-15 minutes.
Add dry fruit powder, and cardamom. Cook again for 15 more minutes.
Remove mixture from pan and put on a plate greased with ghee. Allow to cool.
Using a tablespoon, scoop laddoo onto a cookie sheet and decorate with golden raisins.
When they cool completely, store in air tight container and refrigerate. They will last for about 7-10 days in the refrigerator.
**Grind dry fruits of choice in a blender or food processor, until you have powder – a mortar and pestle would also work.
