Tips & Variations

  • If you have coarse desiccated coconut then blend it in a mixer for few seconds.
  • You may also roast desiccated coconut for 2-3 minutes in a teaspoon of ghee before mixing condensed milk to get maximum flavor.
  • If coconut ladoo mixture looks dry and unable to form a ladoo then add little milk and mix it. Adding milk gives a nice soft texture and also easy to hold.
  • If you are using fresh coconut then roast in little ghee for 4-5 minutes till the moisture goes away or until it turns aromatic.
  • Cook the coconut and condensed milk mixture on a low flame with constant stirring else it may burn.
  • You can also add chopped roasted nuts like almonds and cashews.
