Coconut Ladoo Recipe with step by step pictures: Absolutely soft and melt in mouth ladoo made with desiccated coconut, milk, and sugar are nariyal ke ladoo. These are absolutely delish. This coconut ladoo recipe is very simple and easy to make. It does not call for too many ingredients. Generally, coconut ladoo recipe calls for condensed milk or khoya. However, in this recipe none of these has been used. These nariyal ke ladoo have been flavored with cardamom. Instead these can be flavored with saffron or nuts etc. If you want to get innovative and creative, ingredients such as mango puree, strawberry pulp, etc can be used. You can also stuff the coconut ladoo with any nut paste or gulkand.
Desiccated Coconut: Make sure to use absolutely fresh desiccate coconut. If it is aged it carries a typical aroma, which is so not good for good nariyal ke ladoo.
Milk: Full fat milk works the best for nariyal ke ladoo recipe.
Sugar: I like my sweets and desserts very sweet. And therefore I have added enough sugar to it. As in for one cup of desiccated coconut used, I have used little less than half a cup of sugar. You use just one-third cup of sugar for moderately sweet nariyal ke ladoo.
Ghee: Little ghee is used for roasting desiccated coconut. Do not use too much ghee otherwise, the ladoo will be too greasy.
Flavoring: This is optional but some flavoring agents of your choice will enhance the taste of this sweet. You can flavor it with some nuts, saffron or cardamom, etc. I have used cardamom to flavor the ladoo.
