Coconut Ladoo

Its Ganesh Chaturthi, one of my favorite festivals. Ganesh Chaturthi is celebrated as the Birth of Bhagwan Shri Ganesh.  On this day, the idol of Bhagwan Ganesh is brought at homes / pandals and pujas are done. Its a 10 day festival and the 10th day is celebrated as Anant Chaturdashi, which is also known as Ganesh Virsarjan day when the devotees immerse the idol of Bhagwan Ganesh in water, which is celebrated with a grand procession and immediately wait for him to come again next year soon.. Generally when idols are brought at homes, the idol is kept for 1.5 day, 3 days, 5 days or for whole 10 days according to the family culture. 
Happy Ganesh Chaturthi 
Bhagwan Ganesh loves Modak, Ladoos and I am making Coconut Ladoo with just limited ingredients.

Desiccated Coconut 1 cup + little for rolling the ladoo
Condensed Milk 1/2 tin
Dry fruits/nuts assorted 2 tbsp
Cardamon Powder 2 tsp

Roast desiccated coconut till it leaves an aroma, but be careful not to burn it.

Roast add dry fruits/nuts.

In a pan add the roasted desiccated coconut, dry fruits/nuts, and mix once. Now add condensed milk and cook on slow flame till it leaves the sides of the pan, May be 3 - 4 minutes. 

Add cardamon powder and mix once.

Now remove the mixture and place it on a plate and allow to cool.

Make small ladoos out of it and roll over the remaining desiccated coconut.

Garnish with Raisin or any dry nut of your choice and serve.
