2 C Ripe Papaya Pulp
1 Tbsp Ghee (clarified butter)
3/4 C  Raw Sugar (add depending on the sweetness of fruit)

1/4 C Mixed Nuts powder (Almond. Cashew)
Few pinches of Cardamom powder OR
1/2 tsp Mixed Fruit Essence
2 Drops orange & red  food color (optional)

In a non stick wok, heat papaya pulp on a medium flame, cover lid and stir occasionally as water content from papaya starts to evaporate add sugar and let it cook until it thickens just more than a pancake batter.
At this point add milk powder (add more to form ball if required), mixed nuts powder, coconut powder, cardamom or food color if using, fruit essence (optional).
Take it off from flame, let it cool a bit and start making golf size balls.
In a separate bowl take just enough of desiccated coconut powder to roll these balls for even coating.

Tip: You can add red food coloring in desiccated coconut powder which is kept aside to roll these balls for some fancy decoration. (See picture)
