If you are looking for a last minute sweet for Ganesh Chaturthi then try out these yummy and mouthwatering coconut ladoos. A beginner’s recipe that can be prepared in just 15 minutes. Quick and easy ladoos that are made with mawa, unsweetened desiccated coconut and condensed milk. Mawa/khoya adds a rich taste and perfect texture to these ladoos and they will just melt-in-your-mouth from the first bite you take. I have prepared these ladoos for Ganesh Chaturthi but they can be enjoyed at any festive occasion.
RECIPE DETAIL – I have used unsweetened desiccated coconut for this recipe. Sauteing desiccated coconut in ghee along with mawa adds a nice softness and texture to the ladoos. Once condensed milk is added, take the mixture off the flame and keep mixing till it forms a dough. Feel free to use other flavors instead of saffron. In the past, I have used pistachio flavor and Roohafzha for these ladoos and they tasted equally good.
Form a soft dough out of the mixture and roll them in small golf sized balls. Give them a final makeover by rolling the ladoos in dried coconut. These ladoos are good for a 1-2 days if left out on the kitchen counter and for 2-3 weeks if stored in the refrigerator.
