26 COCONUT LADOO

Coconut(Thengai) Ladoo/laddu/Sweet balls



Starting my first post for the year 2010 with a simple sweet loved by all. One of the easiest and simplest way to make coconut laddu's in a jiffy.

Grated coconut flakes - 3 cups( I used un sweetened dry flakes)
Sweetened Condensed milk - 1 can( 14 oz)
Cardamom powder - a pinch
Ghee - 1 tbsp ( Optional)


Heat a pan and fry coconut flakes in medium flame for not more than 2 minutes. Be careful not to darken and discolor them. Immediately pour in the condensed milk and start stirring in. Stir until it leaves the edges and comes together. Will not take more than 3 minutes. Add in cardamom powder and ghee and mix. Switch off flame and when still warm enough, grease in your fingers and palm with ghee and take a small quantity and press and roll in as laddu/laddoos. Note the mixture won't be that hot enough, so you can immediately start making balls before they dry up.


For this quantity you can make around 30 - 35 mediun sized laddoos. Can also try the same in microwave. Just check every minute, stir in and place back.
