Berry Blast Coconut Ladoos
I absolutely adore coconut. Anything and everything with Coconut just takes me on a culinary trip.
The nutty flavor is sooo sooo intoxicating and inviting.
I love making dishes with coconut, either the fresh one or the easily available dried one.
And this one dish Coconut Ladoos are always there on my menu for almost all the festivals. You can either blame it on my love for cocnut or the super duper simple, quick and easy recipe for making these ladoos.
Believe you me, the nutty flavor of coconut is greatly enhanced and balanced by these selected awesome flavorings. And the flavors which I chose are-

Desiccated Coconut- 100 grams +1 tablespoon extra for rolling
Cardamom powder- 1/2 teaspoon
Condensed milk-100 grams
Dried Blueberries- 6-7, chopped
Dried Cranberries- 6-7, chopped
Red Food Color- 1/4th teaspoon
FAB BERRY BLAST FLAVORING- 2 teaspoon
Garnish with Pista slivers
Heat a thick bottom pan on medium heat.
Add dessicated coconut. And slow roast it for a minute on medium low heat just to warm up the coconut
Add condensed milk to the pan along with cardamom powder.
Stir continuously and quickly mix till the whole mixture form a big lump and leaves the side of the pan.
The longer the condensed milk cooks, the harder your ladoos will be. It will take just 1-2 minutes to mix it all up and remove it from the heat.
Put the mixture into another bowl and add Berry Blast flavoring, chopped berries along with Red food color. Mix everything well.
And let it cool for about 5-7 minutes.
To assemble the ladoos, take a heaped tbsp of the fudge mix in your clean hands.
Shape it into a round or the shape you like. I have tried giving them strawberry shape ;)
Roll the fudge in the extra desiccated coconut and repeat the procedure for the rest of the mix.
Your Berry flavored Coconut ladoos are ready.
