Coconut Laddus / Narkel Naru

Recipe of Tanushri Dan
Ingredients for "Narkel Naru":
For 18-19 pieces
Coconut 1 large (Freshly grated)
Milk 1 litre
Sugar 1 and 1/2 cup + 1 table spoon

Boil the milk till it reduces to about 1 cup , I used full cream milk and reduced it slowly .Then add 1 tablespoon of sugar , stir for 1 minute and take off the fire.
Grate 1 cup coconut from the finer hole, mix 1 cup of sugar into this using your hands. Then heat on a low flame till sugar melts and the mixture thickens - about 10 minutes. Now add the reduced milk and cook another 3-4 minutes.
Allow the mixture to cool down till lukewarm - 20 minutes or so , at this stage ( add nuts , option ) the mixture is pliable and you can shape your loddoos as desired .
This is a brilliant recipe . I Made some adaptions . I used 1 cup of brown sugar not white sugar , reduced sugar to 1 cup not 1.5 , and I added 2 tablespoons nicely crushed almonds just before shaping the laddus . Absolutely divine !
