Full-Flavoured Coconut Ladoos

Coconut Ladoos are a traditional Indian sweet desert-snack. These treat are usually made for festivals or religious ceremonies however, being super easy to make and loved by everyone, they make an excellent desert come snack. I love them too much, especially when made like this, to save them for a special occasion!

Try out my recipe for Coconut Ladoos below:


  • 100g coconut freshly grated or frozen, desiccated can also be used.
  • 740ml milk
  • 110g sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cardamom powder


  1. In a heavy bottom pan bring the milk and coconut to a boil over a medium-high heat. Stirring occasionally.
  2. Once boiling, reduce the heat to a medium and cook for approximately 30 mins, or until all the moisture is absorbed. The coconut should now be a thick, creamy consistency.
  3. Add the sugar and cardamom to the mixture and cook for another 10mins. Stir this continuously until the moisture is absorbed. Once the mixture is thick and crumbly turn off and remove from the heat.
  4. Next, spread the coconut onto a plate and let it cool to a room temperature. To make the Ladoos, take a large tablespoon, or two, into your palm and roll into a smooth ball. Enjoy!
