Take a heavy bottomed kadai r pan..pour the condensed milk..keep the flame in simmer..meanwhile wash the can n use it to measure the dessicated coconut flakes, add half cup of water with the condensed milk n heat it..once they start boil, add 2 cups of dessicated coconut flakes(leave the half cup dessicated coconut flakes for rolling the laddus), cardamom powder n stir them well..

Add a tsp of water to the food colour n add it to the coconut mix..add the ghee n stir for a while..they will turn as a dough n get off from the bottom of the pan..put off the stove..
Take a small quantity of the dough n make them as small balls, roll them with the rest of the dessicated coconut..store them in a air tightened box..can keep them in room temperature for 2 to 3 days...

Hi,
I just wanted to know that most recipes ask you to fry the coconut but u have not. iam jsut curious i want to make this for diwali and so far your's is the easiest recipe.

@ Reddy, since the coconut used in this recipe goes for dessicated coconut, there is no need to fry them, also dessicated coconut tends to burn if u roast them..hope this helps..

hi which food coloring do you use for this recipe

I used orange food colour, you can even skip it and make pure white laddoos.

Hi Priya,
Thanks for posting this lovely coconut laddoo recipe.

I tried it yesterday and it came out real yummy!

Some points:
The laddoos came out nice and round, but were soft to the touch and eat - is that ok?

Or should they be hard like Besan laddoo or Rava laddoo?



- I used Amul Mithai mate (I think this is less condensed than Nestlé) with half the tin and other ingredients proportionately.

Do you think that made a difference to the "softness"?


thanks,
Hasita

Thanks for trying Hasita, these laddoos wont get hard like besan or rava laddoos,,they will always a soft inner even after many days,but they wont be soft while touching, this is may be coz of the condensed milk you used for, may be this make the difference.Hope i cleared your doubt.
