Coconut Laddoo and shower of awards

It's raining heavy day and night in Singapore...and in the other side my blogger freinds are showering their love on me with so many touching awards....I don't mind this kind of shower at all. It feels so good when people show their affection and love without knowing you much.....I am really touched, Meera. Meera of Enjoy Indian Food, is the most active food blogger I know. She just keeps posting her beautiful, mouth watering recipes almost every day..... I love to visit her blog and wonder how she does this. She showered me with these awards.............

The award states that:
"These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement (? big word, lol). Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award."

I would love to pass all those awards to all these lovely ladies......... to some more freinds, may be some other time

Soma, Sharmila, Arundhuti, Sandeepa, Priya, hemabalaji, Chithra, Gayathri, LG, Priyanka, Purnima, Alka, Sowmya, Rashmi

Congrats all and Meera, thanks a lot for considering me in your freind circle.... this platterful of Coconut Laddoo is for you..................

Now the recipe for Coconut Laddoo (Narkel Naru) needs :

Shredded coconut(fresh or dessicated) : 2 and 1/2 cups
Condensed Milk : 1/3 of 12 oz. tin(as per your sweet tooth)
Green cardamom Powder : 3 tsp. (take out the seeds and crush them with a roolling pin)

Method :
  • take a pan, add coconut and stir for 2-3 minutes. Then add condensed milk little by little and mix well with the coconut. Stir continuously(to avoid sticking and burning) in medium flame until mixture leaves the sides of the pan.
  • The above process takes about 10-12 minutes depends on your quantity. To check if it is doen, take a little mixture on your palm and roll with the other palm very gently and if you can form a ball without breaking it, then you are done.
  • Then take the pan out of heat and sprinkle cardamom powder. Mix well with the mixture.
  • Spread on a wide plate and let it cool a little. Then form into small balls same way as before. Roll them into coconut powder if you wish and serve.
Tips : You can store them for at least 2 weeks if refrigerated ans satisfy your sweet tooth now and then.

Sending them to Lakshmi's event SWC: Meals on Wheels.

Hey Indrani,

Congrats on your awards & kind words about me too. You know what, I was on a break so couldn't reply to your comment. I should have left you a note about the awards before going on break. But i just ran out of time. Hope you don't mind.
