SEMOLINA COCONUT BALLS

Very delicious easy to make semolina coconut ball/ladoo attracts everyone. If one plate of this ladoo is infront of you, just forget about calorie...who cares?...simply grab it. Really mouthwatering, with a nice aroma, these ladoos are something different than any other desserts. North or South, East or West this will be an excellent sweet for all of us.
INGREDIENTS:
1 cup Semolina (Rava)
1 cup shredded Coconut (Frozen)
1/3 cup sliced Almonds
1/3 cup Raisins
1/2 tsp Cardamom powder
1 cup Sugar
1/2 cup water
2 tbsps Milk cream (Malai)
2 tbsps Clarified Butter (Ghee)
Few Raisins for decoration

METHOD:
Heat sugar, cardamom powder and water in a sauce pan on low flame. Make a syrup of right consistency. Take a drop of syrup between two finger tops, if it forms a light thread, make sure that it is the right consistency. Keep it warm.

In the mean time, heat clarified butter in a pan. Add sliced almonds and raisins into it. Fry for half a minute, now add semolina in it. Stir continuously for 2 minutes. Then add coconut and stir for another 2 minutes.

Add milk cream and sugar syrup in it. fold well. Stir for another a minute or two on low heat. Remove from heat. Cool a little. When mixture is warm but touchable, shape small balls from it. Give a shape of small ladoos.

Garnish with raisins, make it completely cool at room temperature. Store in a air tight container.

TIPS: While roasting semolina, make sure you have the flame in sim, otherwise semolina would be over
         roasted.
