List Of Ingredients: (Makes 12 pieces)
- Desiccated Coconut Powder- 2 cups
- Condensed milk (Milkmaid)-200 grams
- Desiccated Coconut powder-1/2 cup (For coating)
- Ghee / Oil-1 tsp
Steps To Prepare:
Take 2 cups of desiccated coconut powder in a non stick or heavy bottomed pan. Roast it on low-medium flame for 2-3 minutes till it starts dispersing rich coconut aroma and slightly changes in colour.
If you want to add nuts in your ladoos add them at this step & roast them with desiccated coconut.
Add condensed milk to it with constant stirring so that the mixture does not stick to the bottom and gets burnt.
Keep mixing it for 4 to 5 minutes till the mixture starts leaving the edges of the pan. Keep it aside for 2 minutes so that mixture becomes warm and easy to handle. Don’t let the mixture cool down completely, start making balls when it is still warm.
Rub a little bit of desi ghee or oil on your palms. Take spoonfuls of mixture and start shaping them into balls one by one.
Roll these balls in the remaining half cup of desiccated coconut powder.
Delicious Coconut Ladoos are ready!! You can decorate them with a raisin or almond sliver on top.
Coconut Ladoo Variations :
1. You can add chopped almonds, cashews,pistachios etc to add crunch to these ladoos.
2. If you are a chocolate lover, add 1-2 tsp of cocoa powder in the mixture. Mix well and you will have chocolate coconut ladoos ready.
3. You can drizzle some melted dark chocolate on top of these ladoos for contrast.

Thanks a lot Sorabh for trying out the recipe and sharing your experience 😊 I think they may have turned a little on brownish side because either the utensil in which you have roasted has light base or you have dry roasted them for a little longer but I am sure they must have turned out delicious. Glad you liked them!!!

After you mixed the two I have always added a cup of blended nutsmof my choice.Place in the frig for thirty minutes to an hour. And then dampen your dry hands with butter and roll your ladoos (balls) to the size you wish. Roll in coconut and place in airtight container. Store in the frig.the shelf life is a week.Good wishes
These looks really tempting … How many of these can be madeby using the above quantity?
Thanks for the compliment Pallavi Dahore 🙂 The above quantity yields 12-13 ladoos.
Yes..Even I add chopped nuts too these ladoos especially in winters. However I prefer rolling them when they are warm. I personally feel if the mixture is chilled it becomes slightly difficult to roll ladoos with them.
