I am working overtime this Diwali to make your Diwali cooking experience, a very happy and delightful one. This easy and traditional coconut laddu needs just 3 ingredients- coconut, milk, and sugar. Anyone, even beginners can try this with ease. I have also given you ideas on how to decorate the laddus (any laddus) for kids. I am sure that it would be great fun for the kids to help in making these and also eat. I want you to enjoy the smiles and happiness you get from your kids when you present these lovely looking laddus. Though I have decorated coconut laddus, you can do this with any laddus. (see links of all laddus below). All you need is a few dry fruits and nuts for decoration. Today we will learn how to make Coconut Ladoo following this easy recipe with step wise pictures.
Grated coconut and keep it ready. You can use desiccated coconut also.
Heat a tsp of ghee and fry the grated coconut slightly.
Then add milk and cook on medium low until all the milk is absorbed. Keep stirring frequently to avoid the milk from getting burnt. You can use condensed milk also instead of milk. (in that case, you can avoid sugar)
When all the milk is absorbed, add sugar. The mixture gets a little diluted once you add sugar.
Keep cooking on low flame for some more time until the mixture becomes sticky and you are able to make balls out of it. The mixture will also leave the sides of the pan.
Once it cools slightly, grease your hands with a little ghee and make even sized balls out of it. Delicious Coconut laddu is ready. You can engage your kids also in making these balls. Ensure that the mixture is warm before allowing them to shape laddus.
Prepare this easy and quick Diwali sweet and enjoy with your family and friends.
