Coconut laddoo – who doesn’t love them? They are an absolute favourite in my house! While they are a staple during the festive season, my son likes to indulge in a few mid year too. He simply loves them and makes it a point to tuck in a few when they are freshly made. I am not sure why I never posted the recipe because well, I thought they were super common and the recipe was popular anyways. I like the fact all brands of condensed milk always have a nice recipe stuck on the tin which comes handy and I just followed the recipe. I have created a short video for the same so don’t forget to check it out!
So coconut laddoo is one of those treats that you can put together in a jiffy. All you need is some fresh (latest production) desiccated coconut & a tin of condensed milk. Cardamom powder enhances the aroma but it is totally optional. With the first two ingredients you can create magic within 15 minutes! Yes, it’s that easy. All you need is a pan in which to cook the mixture. Well, I know of recipes that don’t even call for any cooking but I prefer it as I feel that it helps the coconut bring out some flavour when it gets heated. This recipe is so easy that you can involve your kids to help make the balls. Roll them in some more desiccated coconut and you have a lovely treat to enjoy. You can make them fresh just before you plan to serve them as they taste best this way. You can also make them to be gifted during the upcoming festive season. So what are you waiting for?! Go grab that tin of condensed milk and a pack of desiccated coconut and make these and enjoy!!
