Coconut ladoo

This is one of the easiest sweet done under 15 minutes with only two main ingredients. The highlight of this sweet is it is vegan. Coconut mixed with jaggery and rolled as ladoos. This recipe was shared by my aunt. When tasted could not believe there was no ghee in it. The jaggery in it gave a nice glossy look too. Try this simple recipe if you are out of time......

  • Grated coconut - 1 cup
  • Jaggery - 3/4 cup
  • Cardamon powder - 1 tsp


Powder the jaggery and mix it with 1/2 cup of water. Heat the jaggery water till it melts. Switch off. Strain to remove any impurities. 
Bring to heat again, first small bubbles will start and the jaggery syrup will start thickening.  Keep a small  plate ready filled with little water. Take a drop of jaggery syrup and put it in water, it should stand firm and not dissolve as shown below. It will form a nonsticky soft ball.
Further heating results in hard ball consistency is what you need for this ladoo. when you roll the ball it will hold firm and when dropped it on the plate the 'tang' sound should come. Switch it off or immediately transfer the grated coconut and cardamon powder and mix well. 
Turn on the heat and stir till it thickens a little for 2 minutes. Switch off. Cool down completely. Using your hand or use a disposable gloves to form a ball.
Yummy!!!! Ladoos
