Coconut Laddos

My kids are great fans of these laddus due to its chewy nature. I have lifted the look and feel of the laddus further more by adding the warm orange colour and placed them in the paper moulds. Outside, you can store them not more than 3 days, but in the refrigerator you can store them for up to 7 days.

Desiccated Coconut (Fine variety) – 2 cups
Condensed milk – 1 cup
Whole Milk – ½ cup
Food colour (Optional)

Heat a pan and boil the whole milk. When the milk reaches the boiling point add the desiccated coconut and condensed milk along with the food colour (if using) and keep stirring until the coconut absorbs all the moisture and the mixture becomes thick and consistent to make laddus.

Initially though it looks bit loose and wet, when it gets cold if will become tight. Allow the mixture to cool down. Take 2 tbsp of desiccated coconut in a plate and scoop some amount of laddu mixture in to your palm, roll them in the desiccated coconut and make round balls.
