COCONUT HEARTS ( Valentine Day Special )



Easy coconut sweet that can be made in 20 minutes. You can make any shape you like. I made it heart shaped for Valentine Day.



Ingredients:
Dry dessicated coconut ... 2 cups (plus 1/4 cup for coating )
Milk powder ................... 2 tbsps
Condensed milk ............  1/2 can (about 100 gms )
Milk or water.................. 2 tbsps
Ghee / clarified butter ... 2 tbsps
Cardamom powder ....... 1/8 tsp


Method:
1. In a thick bottomed pan heat the ghee.
2. Add coconut and saute on low flame for 4-5 minutes.
3. Mix the milk powder and condensed milk and keep stirring continuously on low flame.
4. Add 2 tbsps of milk and continue to stir until it leaves the sides. (5-7 mins )
4. Add the cardamom powder and mix well.
5. Shape the mixture into hearts using heart shaped cookie cutter.
6. Coat them with dessicated coconut.

This quantity makes about 15 - 18 pieces depending on the size of the cutter / mould.
