Narkel Naru

Fresh grated coconut / Frozen Shredded coconut - 1 lb
Whole Milk - 1 ltr
Sugar - 3/4th cup
Cardamom powder - 1/2 tsp
Ghee - 1 tsp

Mix the shredded coconut with milk in a heavy bottomed pan and bring it to boil over medium heat.

Once it comes to boil, reduce the heat and cook the mixture for around 30 minutes, stirring frequently, till the milk almost dries up and the mixture begins to leave the sides.

Add sugar and cardamom powder and cook for a while till the mixture comes together and no longer sticks to the pan.

Remove from heat and spread it to cool a little.

Once it is cool enough to be handled, apply ghee on the palms of your hand and with gentle hand make balls of the mixture. Cool completely and store in air tight container.
