Easy Coconut and Pistachio Laddu

Sweets – the word brings smile to many faces.. Doing sweets at home is a challenge many times as most of the Indian Sweets are tedious. However some sweets that are quick, easy and tasty brings smile to the person cooking it..  Especially when it looks like a lot of effort being put in, but can be done in less than 15 minutes.. Mix, cook for 5 minutes, cool, roll and serve!. vola that is easy.. Perfect for sudden guests, parties, actually for any occasion. I got this recipe from here. This makes around 18 laddus.

Sanjeev Kapoor (Khana Khazana) said – “you start to cook with condensed milk and then you do not make the recipe but eat the condensed milk by itself, then also it is fine… “ – This is not the exact phrase, but he said something similar to this. This is so true!!!!

Sweetened Condensed Milk - 1/2 tin - 200 grams
Coconut - 1 3/4 cup (grated)
Pistachio Essence - 2 drops
Pistachio - 3 table spoons (chopped) + 3 table spoons (chopped)
Saffron - A pinch
Warm Milk - 1 table spoon

Put saffron in warm milk for 3 minutes
In a heavy bottom pan, add together condensed milk, saffron milk mixture and coconut and cook on slow flame for around 3 to 5 minutes until the mixture leaves the sides and comes together. You need to stir continuously to avoid burning.
Once the mixture leaves the sides and comes together, add the essence and 3 table spoons of the chopped pistachio and remove from heat and mix it well
Once little cool to touch (not completely), make small laddus and roll it over the chopped pistachio and make tight balls
It will get more tight as it cools
