COConut Laddoo - Super simple laddoo
Serves: 15 to 20 laddoos
Coconut laddoo is soft laddoo made using fresh or desiccated coconut which is super simple to make and can be made using either sugar or condensed milk.
  • 3 cups - Desiccated coconut
  • 2 cups - Milk
  • 1 cup - Sugar
  • 3 pods of cardamom
  • 6 to 7 Cashews broken into small bits
  1. In a heavy bottom pan mix desiccated coconut and milk and let it sit for a couple of minutes
  2. Now put the pan on a low flame and cook the coconut for a couple of minutes while stirring continuously.
  3. Add the sugar and on a medium low flame cook the coconut with stirring continuously.
  4. Do not stop stirring and mixing as the coconut mixture will get stuck to the bottom.
  5. The sugar will melt and the mixture will be loose.
  6. After about 20 minutes of cooking, the mixture will start thickening.
  7. The mixture will start looking crumbly with all the milk and sugar evaporated and will start leaving the edge of the pan.
  8. That is when it is done.
  9. This will take 30 mins or so to reach this stage.
  10. Once the mixture has thickened, switch off the flame and let the mixture cool down.
  11. Once the mixture is cooled add colour to them  in case you are adding them and mix it well.
  12. Make lemon sized balls and roll them in dry desiccated coconut. It is very easy to handle and to shape and hence you will not face any difficulties.
  13. It keeps well for 4 to 5 days when kept out.
