Coconut Ladoo with Condensed Milk

How many of you love coconut ladoos? No, I am not talking of those made using sugar syrup, but of the richer ones that use condensed milk (home made). I can tell you, these are super soft and tastier smile emoticon.

Learned this recipe from a dear friend (Radha Natarajan).  Coconut offers umpteen health benefits, contrary to popular belief. 


Coconut Ladoo Recipe:
1/2 cup grated/ ground fresh coconut
1/4 Cup - milk powder (if you do not have powder, you can skip it and instead use cream or malai) 
1/4 cup sugar 
1/2 cup milk 
1 tbsp ghee/melted butter (optional)
1/4 tsp. green cardamom powder





coconut ladoo
Mix milk powder and milk well. Add sugar and 1/2 tbsp ghee and keep it on low flame. Stir continuously until it becomes thick. Keep aside.
Heat 1/2tbsp ghee in a non stick pan. Keep on  medium-low flame.
Add the freshly grated coconut and saute them on low flame. This shouldn't take long - just a couple of minutes.

Add the prepared condensed milk to coconut and mix all the ingredients. Keep stirring on a low flame.
Add cardamom and mix well. 
Cook until the mixture comes together. When the mixture forms like a mass in the center of the pan, switch off the gas.
Roll small balls when the coconut mixture is still hot (make sure you do not burn your hands).
Enjoy home made coconut ladoos.
