Coconut Balls for a Sweet Beginning

Wishing everyone a Very Happy New Year 2013. Let me start the new year wishing you all the best of best health, peace of mind and wealth. May you all be given a lot of strength to travel through this year seamlessly. 

I am sure many of you would have resolutions.. My top priority resolution is to give quality time to my blogs. Set a dedicated time for it along with my normal chores. I hope to live up to my resolution. 

Im starting the year with a sweet recipe, it is also an entry for an event which is being hosted by a fellow blogger and good friend Veena.

Festival days always, have a lot of coconut that is being broken for Pooja and for cooking as well. How do u use the large quantity of coconut. I decided to make my grandmother s favorite sweet, coconut balls aka thengai urundai. This is also a famous street food in the villages during festival times. 


Coconut scrapping - 2 cups 
Sugar - 1.5 cups
Cardamom powder - a pinch


In a heavy bottomed wok add the coconut scrapping
Saute coconut for about 3 minutes
Add sugar to the coconut and keep stirring 
After about 15 minutes you will see that coconut and sugar blending together and forming mixture
Remove from fire and wait till the mixture comes to a hand bearable temperature
Make them into small balls and leave them to dry for an hour's time.
You can store them for 3 days, if it is not been gobbled yet.
