How to Prepare
    • In a thick-bottomed pan, dry roast the desiccated coconut for around two minutes or until the rich aroma of coconut comes out.
    • In a bowl, add milk and dry-roasted desiccated coconut.
    • Mix well and keep the bowl aside for around 3-4 minutes to allow the coconut to absorb the milk.

    • Transfer the coconut and milk mixture and cook for a minute.
    • Add cream, milk powder and cardamom powder and mix well.
    • Allow to cook for around 4-5 minutes on a medium flame, stirring occasionally.
    • Add sugar.
    • Mix all the ingredients well and continue to stir until the mixture starts separating from the pan.
    • Switch off the flame and transfer the mixture to a plate and allow it to cool slightly.
    • Grease the palms with a bit of ghee or oil and prepare small-sized balls in the shape of pedas (flatten round balls from the top and a small hole in the centre).
    • Roll over the desiccated coconut.
    • Garnish with pistachios or almonds and enjoy.
