Strawberry Jam & Coconut Fudge-My 1,500th Post

My blog baby is only two years and 5months old,but today i reached my 1,500th post am soo excited and i have no words to explain how happy i am...Nothing is possible without my blogger buddies non stop encouraging comments and continous supports by visiting my blog baby...I can say so many beautiful things happened to me after coming to this wonderful blogsphere..I won so many beautiful events, obviously my first cookbook i got for my book shelf is from this fabulous blogsphere..Even two days back, i won a contest by great Indian chef Sanjeev Kapoor, have no words to explain how happy i am..Coming to this strawberry jam and coconut fudge, i tried out making this easy breezy fudge few days back for my friend's kid's birthday party as the theme for the party is sweets with fruits..Initially i wanted to make some pannacotta which was completely easy and quick for me, finally my friend proposed me to make some Indian sweets which coconut..After a discussion and hesitation, i tried adding some strawberry jam to our usual coconut fudge...This fudge was a big hit among kids, obviously it was one of the best dessert,all the kids loved at the birthday party..

Strawberry Jam & Coconut Fudge

3cups Dessicated coconut
1cup Milk
1+1/2cup Sugar
1tbsp Cardamom powder
1tsp Ghee
4tbsp Strawberry jam
3tbsp Almond powder

Cook the dessicated coconut and milk until the milk get absorbed completely by dessicated coconut and keep aside...Take the sugar in a pan, add enough water to cover the sugar, bring to boil and cook until the sugar syrup gets two string consistency, add the dessicated coconut, strawberry jam, almond powder and cardamom powder and cook until the mixture turns thick,transfer the mixture to the greased bowl..keep aside until the fudge gets cool..

Slice the fudge as desire and enjoy!!
