Prep: 15 min
Cook: 15 min

Ingredients

60g grated fresh Coconut, (or desiccated, if necessary), plus extra for coating
55g caster sugar
125ml Milk
1 tsp Ghee
1/4 tsp green cardamom seeds, ground
chopped pistachio nuts, for sprinkling

Method

1. Place the coconut, sugar and milk in a small non-stick pan. Bring gently to the boil and cook over a low heat for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

2. Add the ghee and ground cardamom and continue to cook for a further 3-4 minutes or until the mixture is sticky to touch but still moist and it starts to come off the base of the pan in a ball.

4. Form the mixture into little balls or ovals and coat in extra grated fresh coconut or desiccated coconut. Sprinkle with chopped pistachio nuts. Serve.
