Paneer Coconut Ladoo

Paneer Coconut Ladoo for the ocassion of Janmasthami / Krishna Jayanthi.  

Janmashtami, also known as Krishna Jayanthi, a major Festival celebrated as the birthday of Bhagwan Shri Krishna. During midnight, celebrations are on, as it is believed that at that time Bhagwan Shri Krishna had appeared. Celebrations starts with great grandeur - with pujas and bhajans, temples and houses decorated with peacock feathers, flowers, etc...and pujas are done keeping the idol of baby Krishna placed on the cradle.  It is the day when women and other family members keep fast, and prepare lots of dishes as offerings to Bhagwan Shri Krishna,

Bhagwan Shri Krishna was extremely fond of eating butter (Makhan), so offerings of butter and milk related dishes are made without any doubt.

Today I am making Paneer Coconut Ladoo keeping in mind that milk based items are Lord Krishnas favorite and paneer is the ingredient I am using to make this sweet dish.

Freshly Grated Coconut 1 cup
Grated Paneer 1/2 cup
Powdered Sugar 1/4th cup
Kesar 1 pinch
Milk 2 tbsp

Firstly warm milk and add kesar to it.{slightly crushing the kesar}. Mix and keep ready aside.

In a pan, add coconut and saute for few minutes taking care that it doesnt change its color.   

Now add grated paneer into the coconut and saute for 2 - 3 minutes. Add kesar milk at this point. Mix once. Switch off flame.

Allow it to cool down.

Once cooled, add powdered sugar. Mix well. Start rolling out ladoos taking little by little.

Now take the dough, knead once and make small balls.

Take one ball of dough,roll it to roti like on the rolling board, with the rolling pin, using needed atta to dust for.

Heat the tawa. Once heated, place the rolled roti and allow it to cook. Flip the roti and cook, drizzle some oil and again flip it to other side and again drizzle little oil. Once done both sides, transfer it to a plate.

Now lets assemble the Frankie...
To Spread / Topping:
