Easy Coconut Ladoo With Condensed Milk

coconut ladoo

Easy coconut ladoo with condensed milk and the the best part is it just takes 5 minutes to make these coconut ladoos. This is my kind of making Diwali sweets, quick and easy with just 2-ingredients!

Diwali is just around the corner and I wanted to make something quick and easy for my kids; so while going through amma's old recipe box, I came across this recipe cutout which amma has cut and sticked on a paper sometime in the 1970s; I was thrilled when I scrolled down the recipe and wanted to hug amma for saving this "vintage recipe from milkmaid".

Step by Step Method:
Yield: 30 balls.

Add desiccated coconut powder into a nonstick pan or greased iron skillet.

Add in one tin of condensed milk.

Mix well. Heat the pan and put the flame to low (since I used skillet and heat retention is high; lowest flame worked fine for me) if you are using non stick pan, put the flame to medium. Mix nicely for 3-4 minutes. (careful that the underside does not get burned and the coconut is browned).

It will roll into a non sticky mass within 3-4 mins.

Grease your hands and roll into balls. Then roll each one with the kept aside desiccated coconut powder.
