Am happy and thrilled to be a guest at UK Rasoi.Thanx to Nupur for the wonderful opportunity and she is indeed a great blogger with many interesting recipes.Not only that adds credit to her hat;she is brought up a wonderful idea of 'No Fried' concept and that's indeed a healthy alternative,challenging motto in the today's life style.My great friend just requested one thing that I should chose a vegetarian recipe for her guest post.Though as always,I celebrate each moment in my life with something sweet.So do you,Isn't it?? Let's celebrate this post with the most prevalent fruits of summer and the King too,Mango.Hope you will enjoy making these at home and just a caution,these are highly addictive :-)
|(before rolling in coconut powder)|
mango 1 large or 3/4 cup of puree
coconut sweetened flakes 2 1/2 cups (refer notes)
condensed milk 1/4 cup(refer notes)
cardamom powder 1/2 tsp
raisins 1/4 cup
cashews or almonds broken 2tbsp(I used cashews)
coconut powder 2tbsp (to roll)
saffron strands 2(optional,enhances color)
-I have used fresh mango,so cut into slices and pureed it with saffron strands without adding water.(You can use store brought puree too)
-I have used sweetened coconut flakes so just put it in the blender and grind it to coarse powder without adding any water.(This helps to hold shape; skip this step if using fresh shredded coconut)
-Heat a non stick pan and add the coconut and mango puree.Keep stirring till water dries up.
-Then add the condensed milk and wait till the mix starts to leave the sides of pan.(takes about 15-20 minutes)
-Add the cardamom powder,broken cashews and raisins.Mix and put off flame.
-Wait till its warm to hold and shape in your palms,then roll each of them into balls.Roll in coconut powder.
-Serve as a sweet or dessert !!
Servings~ 10 laddus
** You can use shredded coconut in place of sweetened coconut flakes.In that case,just dry roast it in the non stick pan before adding mango puree to remove water content.
* You can increase the quantity of condesed milk or decrease as per your sweet tooth.Also,If using shredded coconut,you should increase the quantity of condensed milk.
Enjoy making these at home & Please do hop over to Nupur's space @ UK Rasoi :-))
