Coconut (Nariyal) Ladoo

nariyal ladoo

Here is a simple and easy recipe of very popular coconut ladoo. If you have the ingredients on hand, you can make this sweet anytime. I prepared them today at 4:30 in the morning when everybody was fast asleep. Coconut ladoo turned out fine and we ate them to our heart's content.
Recipe of coconut (nariyal) ladoo
4 1/2 cups dry desiccated coconut (nariyal)
2 tsp cardamom (elaichi) powder
400 ml condensed milk (I used Milkmaid)
1. In a kadhai or a pan, mix dry, desiccated coconut and condensed milk.
2. Cook, stirring, on a medium heat till the mixture begins to leave the sides of the kadhai.
3. Take out from the kadhai and allow the coconut mixture to cool.
4. Add cardamom powder and mix well.
5. Using your hands, form ping pong size balls from this mixture. These are now called coconut ladoo or nariyal ladoo. They should be stored in refrigerator.
