Desiccated Coconut Balls


This is one my favourite dishes to make and to eat as its easy to make. I have made it so many times to keep count anymore. I saw same recipe in India visit information, they used desiccated coconut as a substitute for the fresh coconut. When I saw the recipe in that site I was so sure I am gonna try it out with desiccated coconut. Its a simple dish that never fails to satisfy you with its taste.

Desiccated Coconut - 2 cups + 2tbs(for rolling)
Sweetened Condensed milk - 3/4 cup
Pistachio- 1 tbs
Cardamom powder 1/2 tsp
Place coconut in a microwave with microwave safe bowl for 2 to 3 mins (it depends on your microwave ovens). Keep stirring in between at interval of every 30 seconds ( it doesn't change colour).
In case not using microwave, fallow this method : Heat a pan on stove add coconut to it. Roast on low medium stirring constantly (keep mind, it doesn't change colour).
Now add the condensed milk and cardamom powder to the fried desiccated coconut and mix it well. Stirring continuously until 1 minute and remove from the heat and quickly roll them into small balls with ghee hands. while making balls put one pistachio in center of the each ball. Finally Roll them into remaining desiccated coconut.
note: make all the process in low heat
