Coconut Ladoo

My daughters love coconut ladoos and I make them with no nuts as my elder daughter is allergic to all tree-nuts. Its a quick and easy sweet to make and healthy as well, so it checks all boxes for me as a mom.

Prep Time: 5 Mins

Cooking Time: 15 mins

Rolling time: 10 mins
Recipe Level: Easy
Serves: 20
Shelf Life: Eat fresh/ refrigerate in a air tight jar
Serving Suggestion: With toasted bread or khubz


A sauce pan, tray and a shallow bowl


  • 220 grams of sweetened condensed milk (I used Nestle)
  • A generous pinch of cardamom powder
  • 120 grams of desiccated coconut
  • 2 tbsps desiccated coconut for garnishing
  • 2 teaspoon of milk


  1. If desiccated coconut is very coarse, blend it in the mixer for a while to make it fine.
  2. Mix together coconut and condensed milk and milk in a sauce pan on a hob.
  3. Begin to heat until the mixture turns hot and comes together as a mass (low heat otherwise the coconut will start to roast and turn brown).
  4. Add cardamom powder.
  5. When the mixture comes down to warm temperature, pinch small portions and roll to balls.
  6. Roll them immediately in coconut.


  • Add dry roasted chopped nuts as desired (pistachios, almonds, cashews).
  • The nuts can be stirred in with the cardamon powder.
