im wanting to make some traditional diwali sweets with the children next week but cant find a recipie anywhere that dosent include specialist ingredients. can anyone help?
i can't find one, but i'm sure i've just mixed condensed milk, desicated coconut & icing sugar together before now! just looked, this site has some simple recipes. the ones i think i made are the coconut ladoo but i just mixed condensed milk with grated or desicated coconut and missed out the boiling bit! 10 Easy Diwali Indian Sweets Ladoo Recipes | Diwali 2012
edited to say, i've just been reading some of the other recipes, and ghee is just clarified butter ( melt some butter and let it set, ghee is the clearish bit on the top! )
last time i made a fruit salad with tropical fruit and spices such as cardimon. much easier! and less messy!
