Coconut barfi / laddus


1 lb (500 grams) Coconut powder
I can 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.


Basoondi is a rich Indian sweet. Since it is highly rich in calories, it is normally a festive treat and basically thickened milk flavored with saffron or fruits or nuts.


Whole / Skimmed Milk 4 cups
Pistachios -5
Almonds - 3
Charoli - 1 tsp
Saffron few strands
Sugar 1/2 cup


Soak pistachios and almonds in warm water for few minutes.Peel the soaked nuts and thinly slice them. Wash charoli / sunflower seeds and keep aside. Soak saffron in a tbsp of milk for a minute.

Boil milk in a low flame until it reduces to half and coats the back of the spoon. Keep stirring during the process to avoid scorching. Stir in sugar and saffron milk. remove once the sugar melts completely. Garnish chilled basoondi with dry nuts.
