Homemade Healthy KinderJoy (Natural Choco balls / cakes)



Scrapped Coconut : 1 cup
Organic Jaggery : 1.25 cup
Elaichi powder : a pinch
Fried cashew Optional
Desi cows ghee 2 tbl spoon


Spread the powdered jaggery in a vessel and add water till it is covered and heat till the jaggery is mixed well. Strain the mixture to remove impurities.

Now keep the jaggery mixture in a pan and heat till 1 string consistency.
Once it is arrived add the grated coconut and mix well. After 2 mins add the half of the ghee, elaichi powder and roasted cashew and combine everything.

Now add few drops of ghee to the plate and spread well.
Add the left out ghee to the jaggery coconut mixture. Once you find white bubbles in the sides, start blending it continuously. Just before it comes together as a mass, pour the mixture to the greased plate and allow it to cool.

Take the mixture and form into desired shapes. I had made into balls and squares.If you feel the mixture is sticky jus roll it in rice flour once.

I was about to name this dish as Chocolate balls as it was brown in colour, but to my daughter it looked and tasted like Kinderjoy choco ball.I was overwhelmed that i was able to satisfy my little angel’s urge for sugar candies which are chemical based through this homemade healthy Kinder joy!!! Do try this natural candy and share your feedback.
