Instant Coconut Laddoo : Festival Quickies

4 from 1 vote

This 'lick your fingers' sweet takes just a few minutes to prepare but tastes absolutely divine. I love the flavor of coconut in my dishes, be it cakes cakes, cookies, desserts or sweets. This Instant Coconut Laddoo has a wonderful toasty flavor from the coconut and that blended with the light hint of spices makes this a delectable delight.
Prep Time 2 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 12 minutes
Servings 4


  • 2 cups Freshly Grated coconut [refer notes]
  • 1/2 tin Condensed milk [1/2 of a 400 gram tin]
  • 2 tbsp Milk powder
  • 3 to 4 pods Green cardamom seeds removed and ground
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon Ghee


  • Heat a heavy bottomed pan. Turn the flame to low heat and toast the grated coconut for a few minutes until a nice aroma comes through and a little moisture has disappeared.
  • Take care not to brown/ burn it. Remove 4 to 5 tablespoons toasted coconut from the pan and keep aside on a flat plate.
  • To the remaining coconut in the pan, add the milk powder, ground cardamom, and condensed milk. [You can adjust the sweetness as per taste. Add more if you like it sweeter]
  • On a low flame, stir all the ingredients together. Keep stirring so that the mixture does not stick to the pan. In about 2 to 3 minutes, the mixture will come together into a ball and it will leave the sides.
  • [the mixture will stop sticking to the sides]
  • Grease palms with a little ghee. Divide the coconut laddoo mixture into equal portions and roll into laddoos [or balls]
  • Roll each laddoo in the reserved toasted coconut and arrange in an airtight container.
  • Serve immediately.
  • Store these laddoos in a refrigerator.


You could even use unsweetened dessicated coconut in place of freshly grated coconut.
