How to Make Coconut Ladoo

Ladoo is a very popular Indian sweet. Ladoo prepared with dry coconut or desiccated coconut and mawa is coconut ladoo. Coconut ladoo bursts with the flavors of coconut and has a hint of cardamom. Nariyal ladoo is soft and moist and has melt-in-the-mouth texture. Coconut ladoo recipe calls for a handful of ingredients and is very simple and quick. It is absolutely fuss-free as it doesn’t call for any sugar syrup etc.

It is often prepared on special occasions and festivals. Coconut ladoo can also be prepared to gift to friends and relatives as these are pretty simple and quick to make.

Coconut Ladoo Ingredients

Mawa/Khoya: This coconut ladoo recipe calls for khoya. I prefer to use homemade khoya for this recipe. Soft khoya works best for it. The khoya is cooked till the bind-able consistency. If you have hard khoya, you can add little milk to make it soft and workable.

Dry coconut/copra and desiccated coconut: I prefer to use grated copra i.e. dry coconut kernel to make coconut ladoo. Further, I have coated the ladoo with desiccated coconut. You can use desiccated coconut to make the ladoo but dried coconut gives better flavor.

Powdered Sugar: Since sugar is added after cooking the mawa, it is important to use powdered sugar. Otherwise, the crystals of sugar will ruin the texture of ladoo.

Flavoring: Cardamom complements the coconut ladoo beautifully.

How to make Coconut Ladoo- Tips for perfect coconut ladoo

  1. For the best results use homemade khoya.
  2. Dried coconut or copra or even desiccated coconut has a weird smell if it is not fresh. Therefore use absolutely fresh coconut (dried/desiccated) for the coconut ladoo recipe.
  3. You can adjust the sweetness as per your liking. Before binding the ladoo taste the mixture and adjust the sweetness.
  4. Make sure not to overcook the mawa/khoya.
  5. The mixture should be warm so that ladoo can be made. Do not let it cool down completely.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
