Naralachi vadi... tastes simply divine...😋😋
Every year on the occasion of Narali pournima we prepare some sweets made of Coconut.
Very easy and simple recipe, with little tricks to make it perfect...
*Fresh coconut scraping.... 1 Cup
*Home made ghee... 3 tsp
*Sugar... 3/4 th Cup
*Green cardamom powder... 1/4 tsp
*Saffron strands... 20..25 soaked in 1/2 tsp milk
*Heat ghee in a broad thick based pan, add Coconut and roast for 2..3 minutes.
*Add sugar, mix properly, cook on low flame. Initially sugar will dissolve and then it will start thickening.
* Within 10...12 minutes, it will become a lump,
The correct test to know whether it is done, is insert the spoon or spatula in the centre of the mix, if it is standing firm, it is done. Switch off the gas. Add green cardamom powder and mix well.
*Spread this mix in the pre greased plate with the help of rolling pin.
*Let it cool, when it is little warm, cut the vadi.
*When it will cool completely, remove vadi from the plate with the help of a knife.
*Garnish each vadi with soaked saffron.
*It has a shelf life of 4..5 days.
Note... You can take Dessicated coconut instead of fresh coconut, but then add 3 tablespoon milk while cooking.
