15 Minutes Coconut Ladoos - Only 4 Ingredients


Ladoos, my favorite sweets of all time. You can make it with ofcourse anything. Any powders from wheat flour, gram flour or anything. I have quite a few ladoo recipes in my blog. My favorite kind of ladoos is motichoor ladoos. I made this ladoo around diwali, but i didn't get anytime to post this, so now i am posting it..I have one more ladoo recipe to post too.


This ladoo is so simple to make, just take few minutes to whip up. But the taste is just phenomenol. The condensed milk makes it just wow. In my opinion condensed milk is one of the most versatile ingredient to have on hand. Because you could whip up many sweets with that. Check out my 10 min palkova recipe, which i made using that.



Preparation Time : 5 mins
Cooking Time : 15 mins
Makes : 12 to 15 ladoos
Recipe Source: Edible  Garden

Ingredients:

Coconut - 2 cup ( I used fresh, you can use dessicated coconut too)
Condensed Milk - 1 cup 
Almond - 1/4 cup powdered
Ghee or Butter - 1 tblspn + for greasing hands
Dessicated Coconut for rolling

Method:

Take fresh coconut in a dry kadai and toast them for 3 mins. If using dry toast them for a min.

Now add in condensed milk and mix well. 

Add in almond powder, ghee and mix well.

Keep cooking for 5 to 10 mins till it leaves the sides.

Once it started leaving, remove it to a bowl. Allow to cool down.

Now grease your hands with some ghee. Shape this into small ladoos.

Now take dessicated coconut in a plate. Roll the ladoos in the coconut till it is coated. 

Place it in a air tight container and Store in fridge for a good 2 hours.

Remove it before 30 mins from the fridge before serving.

Notes:

1) If you are using fresh grated coconut, They will be in big grates. So i suggest you to take them in a blender and pulse them for a few mins till it is crushed into small tiny bits. 
2) Adjust the condensed milk as per your taste.
3)Rolling the ladoos in dessicated coconut is optional.
4) You could add cashew powder or any of your favorite nut powders.
5) Store in fridge for a 2 hours, so it gets little hard and sets a little.
6) Always serve this at room temparature or little cold.
7)You can keep this in fridge for upto a week.
