If the mixture is too dry, add few tablespoons of ghee or milk and then shape into ladoos.  If using milk, consume within a day or  store them in the refrigerator.  It stays good for upto 2 days.
You can also add freshly grated coconut instead of dessicated coconut.
Adjust the sugar according to the sweet taste desired by you.
Ensure to grind the sago to a nice fine powder.  It gives a nice texture to the ladoos and consumes less ghee while binding.
