Coconut Ladoo Vegan and Gluten free !!


Today we celebrate Rakshabandhan. A festival in indian traditions that honors the bond between brother and sister . My daughter wanted to make something for her brother for this sweet festival. It had to simple , uncomplicated and delicious !! This recipe meets all her requirements!!

    It is truly the easiest ladoo recipe  !!  4 ingredient recipe made with desiccated coconut powder ,oat-milk sugar and cardamom powder.



4 cups desiccated dry coconut powder

1 cup sweetened coconut condensed milk

1 cup sugar

 1 1/2 cup water

½ teaspoon cardamom powder

⅓ cup desiccated coconut powder for rolling the ladoos 



 1. Let's make the sugar syrup first  - add the sugar and water in a pan and cook on medium low heat till the water reduces to about 3/4 cup. While this is cooking put another pan and on low heat and cook the coconut powder 

  2. Stir and saute  the coconut on a low flame for 2-3 minutes. The sauteing gives a  toasty flavor to the coconut and be mindful not to burn the coconut powder.

4. When done add the sweetened coconut condensed milk and mix well  and put it in a separate bowl to cool .

5. By this time the sugar syrup should be ready check to see if it has reduced to about a cup or less . Once done add it to the coconut mixture and mix well with spoon and allow to cool 

6.  Add ½ tsp cardamom

7. When the mixture has cooled completely, pinch small to medium balls from the mixture and form ladoo.

9. Roll the coconut ladoo in desiccated coconut evenly.
