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
