How to make Green Tea Coconut Ladoo Recipe - Coconut Energy Balls
To begin making the Green Tea Coconut Ladoo Recipe, first get all the ingredients ready and keep them by the side.
Heat the ghee in the wide pan, add the coconut and roast for about 5 minutes until you get a roasted aroma, taking care not to brown the coconut while roasting it.
Once the coconut is well roasted, add the Tetley Green Tea Powder, cardamom powder and the condensed milk. Cook the coconut in the condensed milk on low to medium heat until the mixture begins to thicken and starts to leave the sides of the pan. This process takes about 5 to 10 minutes.
If at any point you notice that the mixture does not leave the sides of the pan you can add some oats flour to thicken the mixture. Oats makes a great binding agent and does not alter the taste of the ladoo.
