Coconut Laddoo

Desserts are a major weakness for many but not for me. If there is one dessert that could make me a convert, it is coconut laddoo. Yes, this inconspicuous Indian sweet has become an instant favourite besides being a regular feature at my home.


  • Grated coconut – 500 gm
  • Condensed milk – 1 can
  • Milk – 1 cup
  • Ghee – 1 tblspn
  • Raisins – To garnish


  1. Heat ghee in a pan.
  2. Add the grated coconut and keep stirring it till all the moisture is gone.
  3. Now pour the milk and condensed milk into the ghee-toasted grated coconut.
  4. Keep stirring it till the liquids are completely absorbed by the coconut (This should take about 20 to 30 minutes).
  5. The idea is to achieve a sticky and mouldable consistency. Once done, remove from heat. Transfer it into a bowl and let it cool.
  6. Follow that step by refrigerating this mixture for about 2 hours or till it slightly hardened.
  7. After refrigerating for the said time, rub a little ghee on your palms.
  8. Scoop out a small quantity of the mixture and make them into tiny balls.
  9. Top them off with raisins and serve.


To enhance the flavour, you could add powdered green cardamom and saffron while stirring the coconut with condensed milk and milk.
