Coconut Ladoo with Condensed Milk - Quick and easy recipe

Saturday, October 21, 2017

When short on time during festivals, I reach for Condensed-Milk. Always have a stock of   condensed-milk cans in my pantry. This is one of such festive-sweet recipe, which turns out very delicious and just melts in your mouth. If you have all the ingredients, it takes less than half an hour to make these yummy ladoos. Remember the ratio is 2:1, that is, for 2 cups of Coconut, you need 1 cup of condensed milk.

  • 1 cup - tightly packed fresh grated coconut
  • ½ cup - Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • ½ tsp - Ghee 
  • 1/2 tsp - Elachi/cardamom - freshly crushed powder.
  • 2 tbsp - Cashew nut - chopped into pieces 
  • 2 tbsp - grated dry(or fresh) coconut 
  1. On low heat  add ¼ tsp of ghee to a wide fry-pan. 
  2. And chopped cashew nuts and slightly roast them.
  3. Transfer the roasted cashew to a plate and keep aside.
  4. To the same pan add freshly grated coconut and turn the heat up to medium. Saute it to remove excess moisture. Do not let it brown. This may take about 2 to 3 minutes depending on how tender the coconut is.
  5. Add the condensed milk and mix it well on medium heat for about 3 to 4 minutes until the mixture thickens. 
  6. Lower the heat, add  ghee, cardamom pdr and roasted cashew-nuts.  Mix them all and keep stiring
  7. When you notice that the mixture does not stick to the pan any more, turn-off the heat.
  8.  On a flat plate spread the grated dry coconut for rolling the ladoos.
  9. You need to work while the mixture is still warm. Apply ghee on your palm, so that the mixture won't stick to your palm or burn. Pinch out the coconut mixture and by rolling your palms together form small lemon sized balls.
  10. Roll the ball in the dry coconut and place it on a tray or a container line with parchment paper.
  11. Repeat the steps 9 and 10 with rest of the cooked coconut mixture.
  12. This should yield about 20 ladoos.  (small lemon sized)  
  13. Store the ladoos in refrigerator. Should last for 3 to 4 days.
