I promise this is the easiest recipe you will find on this blog. The method to prepare it is shorter than its name. And the end result is delicious and they come out exactly right every time. They have been a huge hit with friends and colleagues and I almost hate to tell them that it took no more than 5 minutes to make them. I use coconut powder for these which is finely grated dry coconut. Its is available at grocers very easily. So here goes...
1 lb (500 grams) Coconut powder
1 can (400 grams) of condensed milk
Separate about 2 table spoons of coconut powder aside for garnish. Mix the two ingredients. When thoroughly mixed form into laddus. To make exactly the same size laddus, you can use a ice cream scoop, a kitchen weighing scale or eyeball it like I do. I pick up a fistful of the mixture and wrap my fingers around it. It should fit in my fist and not bulge out on the sides. Repeat for the rest. When finished roll the laddus in the coconut powder to coat and serve. Makes about 20 laddus.
If making barfi, spread on a plate or cookie sheet to make barfi. Sprinkle the coconut on top and press slightly. Cut into diamonds and serve.
