Coconut N Jaggery Balls , Semolina & Oats Kheer

Special festive dishes goes to sweet and savoury dishes...We cant prepare daily sweet dishes either special savoury dishes at home thats why while making dishes during festive times i always prepare mostly delicious and new dishes, and this time Ganesh Chathurthi was on sunday so no need to say how i really felt happy to try out many dishes on this day,i started my chathurthi special dishes with coconut & jaggery balls as this balls are really very easily to prepare,this balls are traditionally prepared for making modaks at my mom's place and i changed this time to turn this modaks stuffing sweet coconut and jaggery mix as yummy ball, and rolled this balls over almond flakes...Now coming to semolina & oats kheer, i have already prepared halwas with oats and kheer with oats and mango, and this time i went for semolina (rava) and oats kheer..Another delicious kheer!!! Am sending this sweet coconut & jaggery balls and semolina & oats kheer to Purva's FF-Janmashtami & Ganesh Chathurthi and the semolia &oats kheer goes to Sanghi's FIL-Milk, again both dishes goes to Sara's Sweets & Savouries Event..


Coconut N Jaggery Balls:
1cup Jaggery
3/4cup Fresh grated coconut
1/2tsp Cardamom powder
Few almond flakes

Make a syrup with jaggery and 1/4cup of water, strain this syrup and heat in medium high flame, stir continously until the syrup get thickens, add the grated coconut and cook until the mixture get thickens, finely add the cardamom powder, put off the stove...keep this mixture aside and let it cool..

Make small balls from this mixture and roll over the almond flakes...Enjoy!!

1/4cup Oats
1/2cup Milk
1/4cup Condensed milk
Few saffron strands
