Kobbari undalu/Sweet Coconut balls

Kobbari undalu also known as Kobbari losulu is one of the traditional home made sweets in Andhra. People with sweet tooth will definitely love these undalu.

All you need is freshly grated coconut, jaggery and little patience to make this dish..Give it a try :)

Ingredients
2 cups freshly grated coconut
2 to 2 1/2 cups of grated Jaggery(I used 2 1/2 cups)
couple of pinches of elaichi powder or cardamom powder(yalakala podi)

Method
Add coconut, elaichi and Jaggery to a thick sauce pan. Turn the heat to medium and place the pan.
The jaggery will start to melt in a few minutes. Let the grated coconut cook well in the jaggery syrup. Keep on stirring continuously so that the coconut mixture does not stick to the bottom of the pan.
Let all the moisture go away and cook till the coconut mixture becomes thick. At this point the mixture will start to stick to the stirring spoon and tend to leave the sides of the pan.
Line a plate with parchment paper or apply ghee to a plate. Turn off the heat and transfer the mixture to the plate and keep aside for few minutes to let the mixture cool down a bit. When the mixture comes down to tolerable temperature, grease your palm with ghee and make balls out the coconut mixture.
Note
To test to see if the coconut mixture is ready, take a spoonful of mixture and let it cool for a minute. Form into a ball and see if the mixture reached the desired consistency. If you can form a ball out the mixture that means you can turn off the heat.
