Coconut Ladoo

This is one of the easiest and tastiest dessert I have ever had. The ingredients used would also be easily available in our kitchen pantry.

Ingredients :
Dessicated Coconut : 1.5 cups
Sugar :2/3 cup
Water : 1/2 cup
Cardamom : 2 pods
Cashew to Garnish (Optional)

Procedure :
1. In a pan add water and sugar and bring it to a boil till you get a one string consistency in the sugar syrup.
2. Now add the coconut flakes and crushed cardamom pods.
3. Take a small quantity of the coconut flakes and roll them into small gooseberry shaped balls.
4. Garnish with small pieces of cashew.

Notes : Bind the ladoos when the sugar syrup is hot.
