Let's start making of coconut ladoo recipe with step by step photos. Learn how to make melt in the mouth ladoos :D

Prep time   :  2 Minutes
Cook time  :  15 Minutes
Total time  :  17 Minutes
Yield         :  8-10 Small size Coconut Ladoo

Ingredients :

Desiccated Coconut - 1/2 cup
Condensed Milk - 1/4 cup
Milk - 1/4 cup
Sooji/ Semolina - 1 tbsp
Cardamom Powder - 1/8  tbsp
Powdered Almonds - 8 to 10 nos
Raisins (for garnishing )
Chopped dry fruits
Coconut powder - 1 tbsp for rolling the ladoo

Preparation Method :

1. First of all, take a raw almonds in a mixer grinder, make it a in a powdered form.

2. Mix the Semolina, d
esiccated Coconut along with the almond powdered.

3. Take a pan, heat it on high flame and add Semolina, desiccated Coconut and Almond powder. Mix well.

4. Roast them on medium flame until you witness light golden color of these ingredients. Stir continuously.

5. After 3 minutes, it has changed its color to golden brown.

6. Now we will add milk & cardamom powder. Milk will help soften the semolina in the mixture.

7. Now add Condensed milk and mix well again. Keep cooking this paste until it thickens approx 3 minutes.

8. After 3 minutes of cooking on medium flame, it will become thick. Switch off the stove and keep it aside to cool down at room temperature.

9. Once it is cool down, we need Ladoo mixture, 1 tbsp of coconut powder for rolling, chopped dry fruits and 1 tsp of ghee or unsalted butter.

10. Grease your both hand palm with ghee. This will help create a non-sticky layer while we roll Ladoo.

11. Now, pick small portion of mixture and roll it using both hands. I will add chopped dry fruits inside the coconut balls and again roll it again.

12. After giving it a round shape, cover around it with the desiccated coconut powder. 

Ladoo will feel a bit soft right now as it is fresh. Don’t worry, it will solidify a bit in a hour or so.

13. Roll it once again in Coconut powder. It is now ready.

14. Garnish it with raisins. Serve it !!

** Note **

  • If you are using whole Dry Coconut then do not use the outer brown layer of the coconut.
  • To make Condensed Milk at home, boil full cream milk and Sugar until it reduces by 50% of its original quantity.

Happy Cooking and Enjoy !!
