Even though I have been very busy, there is always time to celebrate Diwali.....
I made dal makhani as well as paneer rahra. I'm making new paneer dishes that I will be posting soon.
I didn't have time to make lot of sweets, and Diwali is all about sweets for me!!....when I remember Karlos Arguiñano and his typical coconut balls with condensed milk.....bingo!!....I add some cardamom, and I ended up with a fusion between Spain and India....the recipe is very easy, but since I try to make everything from scratch, I made my own condensed milk
160 g of water
210 g refined sugar
100 g unsalted butter
210 g milk powder
Place the water in a pot with the sugar, and warm it at low heat. Add the butter, and let it melt it. Mix it well. Add the milk powder, and with a hand blender mix all together for 4-5 minutes at low heat. Store the condensed milk in a glass jar in the fridge.
Coconut balls (recipe adapted from Karlos Arguiñano)
250 g grated coconut plus some for covering the balls
150 g of condensed milk
2 cardamom freshly crushed.
Mix all together. Add more cardamom if you want. Make small balls, and cover them with grated coconut. ENJOY!
