Coconot Ladoo

Plz forgive the picture quality

Its been ages since my last post.  I decided to start over on a sweet note. I had some fresh coconut on had so I decided on coconut Ladoo. They are my favourite ladoos ever.
Growing up we had a few coconut trees so coconuts were abundant in our house. So whenever there was large quantities of extra milk sweet treats with Coconut were a common thing. My mom would either make Laddoo or burfi. I loved the Ladoos more, not sure why though.
This is the easiest Laddoo recipe ever and so its a keeper.

2 cups fresh coconut
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup milk
1 t spn Cardamom powder
2 Tbl spn ghee

Heat a heavy bottomed pan, add the ghee. Add the coconut to the pan. just cook for 5 minutes. Add milk and sugar. Keep stirring. You will see lot of moisture in the pan. keep stirring, the heat should be on medium at this point. Add the cardamom powder. When the mixture is almost dry. Turn off the heat.
When the mixture is lukewarm, pick up a fistful of the mixture and roll into a ball.
You could add a Raisin/sultana/cashew for garnish on top.
Cool it completely , store in air tight jars.
