For these delicious sweet treats, all we need is a bunch of ingredients, and you're done. These instant laddoos are a treat for the lazy bones as it takes no time to whip up these delicious beauties.

Ingredients -

  • 2 + 1/2 Cup - Desicated Coconut

  • 1/2 Cup - Shakkar Bura/ Sugar( Coarsely ground)

  • 1/4 Cup - Milk Powder

  • 1/2 Cup - Fresh Cream/ Malai

  • 2 Tbsp - Mishri slightly crushed(optional)

  • 1 tsp - Elaichi Powder (cardamom powder)

  • 1 tsp - Chopped Pistachios or nuts of your choice (optional)

  • Saffron Strands - 4-5 diluted in water or milk

Instructions -

  • In a bowl add the 2 cups Desicated Coconut powder, shakkar bura, milk powder, mishri (optional) and elaichi powder. Whisk everything together so there are no big chunks of coconut or sugar in the ingredients.

  • Now add the fresh cream to the dry ingredients and form a nice and soft dough of all the ingredients. You don't have to knead it, just mix well with your fingers so that everything gets nice and homogeneous.

  • Scoop out a portion to make round spheres to form laddoos. Once you have formed all the laddoos coat them in some desicated coconut for a nice effect.

  • Garnish with a saffron bindi and slice of a chopped nut on top. And you are done. Super simple right.

  • Store these in an air-tight container in refrigerator to prevent them from drying. This recipe makes about 20 divine laddoos.

Pro - Tip : While making laddoos use shakkar Bura, or slightly grind the regular sugar in a blender and use. The sugar granules add a nice crunch. Do these with the mishri too. Add some desicated coconut if your mix feels too sticky.

These Coconut laddoos will make you reach out for second helpings as having just one won't satiate your taste buds.feel free to add more or less of the sugar as per your taste. These beauties take no time to make or vanish.
