How to Make Coconut brigadeiros with a hint of mango

  • In a kadai or large saucepan, add all the ingredients mentioned above. (Remember to add only 1/2 a cup of coconut).
  • Cook on medium heat.
  • When it comes to a boil, simmer and keep stirring continuously with a whisk for 30 minutes or until it becomes thick/fudgy and starts leaving the pan.
  • Remove from heat and transfer it to a clean wide bowl.
  • Let it cool at room temperature.
  • If you leave the mixture in the same pan, it would continue to cook.
  • Refrigerate it for 3-4 hours or longer.
  • Take a pinch of the fudge and roll it into a smooth ball (golf-ball size).
  • Place them on a plate or a baking tray lined with wax paper.
  • Repeat until done.
  • Take the remaining (1/2 cup, add more if required) shredded coconut in a bowl and roll each ball carefully until the coconut flakes coats the balls.
