Ingredients to make Narkel Sandesh – Chandrapuli (Coconut Sandesh)

  • Shredded coconut 3 cups
  • sugar 1 cup
  • cardamom powder 1/2 tsp
  • milk 3/4 cup

How to make Narkel Sandesh – Chandrapuli (Coconut Sandesh)

  1. Pulse the shredded coconut in a food processor for 2-3 minutes.
  2. In a heavy bottomed utensil, start cooking the coconut and sugar together. Keep stirring over a very low flame.
  3. As soon as you see the mixture coming together, remove from the stove and wait for it to cool for about 5 minutes. Take care that it is not too dry and the consistency is just right to be shaped.
  4. Please note that if it cools too much you would not be able to mold them. Now take about 2 tbsp of the mixture and try to shape them into a sandesh between the palm of your hands.
  5. If you have molds, wash them and apply some oil on them.
  6. Now take the sandesh that you have shaped between the palm of your hands and place it on the mold and press lightly so that it gets the shape.
  7. If you don't have molds, you can make them into balls or laddus.

My Tip:

Keep on adding milk whenever the mixture looks too dry. The whole process takes easily about an hour when you will see the mixture coming together.
