Malai Laddoo/ Cottage Cheese Sweet - Think Pink

Before few days I got an invite from Arva of I live in a frying pan to join the Fooderati Arabia group...can't tell you how excited I was. I immediately accepted the invite and was happy to be a part of the group consisting of talented bloggers from UAE...these guys have wonderful blogs and I was amazed at how active they were in the group. They meet regularly, organize many monthly events, outings and they are a great support group. 

Through this group I came to know about Breast Cancer Awareness event. October is Breast Cancer awareness month and I am contributing by making a pink post. For people residing in Dubai~ our two fellow FIA members Rajani And Lin are donating 10% of their sales to the Safe & Sound- Breast Cancer Awareness Programme. Visit them at their FB page to know more.

Do support the breast cancer campaign by liking Safe & Sound.



Ingredients: 

Cottage Cheese( Paneer)- 250 grams
Condensed Milk- 3/4 Cup
Cardamom Powder- A pinch
Beetroot Purée- 1 tsp ( or few drops of red food colour)
Clarified Butter( ghee)- 2 tsp

Procedure:
  • Grate and mash the cottage cheese.
  • In a non stick pan add in the clarified butter along with cottage cheese and condensed milk and cook on low heat.
  • When the mixture starts thickening and leaving the sides of pan add in the cardamom powder and turn of the heat.
  • Transfer the mixture in a plate and divide it in two parts.
  • In one part add in the beetroot purée/ food colour and mix it nicely. The mixture will turn pink in colour.
  • Once the mixture cools take out a portion out of  the white part and roll it in a small marble size round and keep aside. 
  • Then take the pink colour dough and take out a big portion out of it. Roll it in a little big round and then with thumb make an impression in the centre, keep the white coloured small marble inside it and then seal all the sides and make a round ball.
  • Repeat the process with other balls as well.
  • I made some with white centre and some with pink centre.

This is how the laddoos looked from inside.

These are best when served fresh but  can also be kept in refrigerator for 2 days.
