Just 3 ingredients: Diwali sweets for the lazy cook
Left the Diwali sweet-making to the last minute? Not to worry. Here are three recipes that need fewer than 3 ingredients. You don’t need to round up a long list of ingredients and they are super easy, too.
It’s condensed milk to the rescue here.
2 cups coconut + extra for rolling the laddoos
½ cup condensed milk
You can use fresh or dessicated coconut for this. If using fresh, warm the coconut on a low flame until the moisture disappears.
Put the coconut and the condensed milk into a non-stick pan and stir over a low flame until the mixture comes together and thickens a little.
When slightly cool, form into small balls. Grease your hands to do this.
Roll the balls in the remaining coconut and leave to set a bit before serving.
Date and Sesame Laddoos
Easy, delicious and nutritious, too
2 cups white sesame seeds
1 and 1/2 cup dates, chopped
1 cup dessicated coconut
Toast the sesame seeds in a dry pan until they begin to pop.
Allow to cool and powder coarsely in the mixi.
Put the sesame seed powder, chopped dates and coconut into a large bowl and mix well.
Shape into small balls and serve.
Just two ingredients and utterly delicious
3 cups freshly grated coconut
1 cup sugar
Put the sugar into a heavy bottom pan. Add a splash of water and let the sugar melt.
Cook on a low flame till you have a thick syrup. Add the coconut and keep stirring till the mixture forms a mass.
Empty it onto a greased plate, allow to cool a little and cut into square or diamond shapes.
