  • 1 tin - condensed milk
  • 2 cups - mango puree (fresh or canned)
  • 3-4 tbsp - cashew pieces
  • 3-4 tbsp - raisins
  • 4 tbsp - dry, powdered coconut
  • 6-7 strands - saffron
  • 2 tbsp - milk
  • 1/4 cup - sugar (optional)

How to Make Mango sweet

  • Empty the condensed milk and the mango puree into a heavy bottomed pan (non-stick pan, preferably) and mix well. Add some sugar if you prefer it sweeter.
  • Heat the mixture on medium flame until it thickens and forms a single lump (approximately 40-45 minutes). Stir continuously.
  • Meanwhile, soak saffron in 2 tbsp warm milk and keep aside for a few minutes.
  • Add cashews, raisins, and soaked saffron to the mango mixture and mix well.
  • Continue to boil the mixture on medium flame.
  • Switch off the stove when the mixture thickens to form a single lump and it comes out of the pan without sticking.
  • Let it cool for about 5 minutes.
  • Make small balls with the mixture and roll them in the dry coconut powder.
  • The balls should be made when the mixture is still hot.
  • Cool completely and store in airtight containers.
