Laddoo (Mango & Coconut)

Again with my favorite mango to make these yummy laddoos. Simple and easy to make these.


Desiccated  coconut - 2 cups
Mango pulp -1 cup  (  Add sugar and make the  Mango pulp)*
Condensed milk - 1/4 cup
Unsalted Roasted pistachios crushed small pieces-1/4 cup  (Optional)
Cardamom powder  - 1/4 tsp

 Desiccated coconut  (unsweetened) - 4-5 tbsp

*  Take mango chunks and throw them in your jar, add some sugar and run your mixie

* Keep a  pan on medium heat and roast coconut until it starts to become dry for about 2-3 minutes (Make
    sure the coconut is nicely dried but not browned
*   Next add the mango pulp and keep stirring, as soon as it  starts to dry up add the cardamom powder and
    keep mixing until it dries up completely.
*   Add the condensed milk and cook till the mixture thickens and leaves the side of the pan. (It should be able to
    form a dough on it own when mixed together, Look for this consistency)                                                      *   Add in the chopped or crushed pistachios and mix well and turn off the heat                                                * Make small rounds while the mixture is warm (not very hot), but do not allow to cool. (Take  a teaspoon 
   measure and rolled them into small balls)

For garnishing:1.         You may roll them in extra coconut . ( I rolled them in dry coconut powder)
2.   Alternatively you may just press in a halved pistachio in the centre of each laddoo.


* If you feel your laddoo is  very soft and is not forming a good ball, add some more roasted desiccated coconut
* Do not wait until the mixture is completely cooled to roll, start rolling while its still warm.

Enjoy making this simple and easy sweet.
