Coconut Ladoo Recipe, Coconut Laddu with condensed milk

Coconut Ladoo Recipe
Coconut Ladoo is one of the recipes that kindles my childhood memories.I remember once my perimma made this after seeing the recipe from milkmaid booklet and it was so delicious.I wanted to try this with dessicated coconut and now that I am able to reach dessicated coconut easily I tried it this year.I made this coconut ladoo when SIL's family visited us some 3 months back yes when I was nearing my due :) I was craving for sweets throughout my pregnancy and I was expecting a girl and almost named her :) Now I am in the process of selecting names for gugu.

I have noted down a recipe with fresh coconut,jaggery and milk as main ingredients will surely try and post it by next year.

My Notes:

  • If you are using fresh coconut then roast the coconut till golden then add condensed milk.
  • Ladoos made with condensed milk has more shelf life.
  • If you are using fresh coconut then the measure of condensed milk may slightly vary so plus or minus accordingly.
  • Do not overcook just switch off once everything comes together.Else the ladoos will turn hard and lose melt in the mouth texture.
  • The ladoo keeps well for atleast 2 days in room temperature.May be after that you can refrigerate it.
