  • 4 cups unsweetened shredded dessicated coconut at room temperature
  • 14 oz sweetened condensed milk (about 1.75 cups) at room temperature
  • ½ teaspoon cardamom powder


  • Add the 4 cups of shredded dessicated coconut to a large pan, also add the cardamom powder.
    Mix well and lightly roast the coconut mixture in very low heat for about 1 to 2 minutes while you keep stirring.
    You just need to lightly roast the mixture so the coconut won't change in color, in case it begins to change color, immediately transfer from the heat.

  • Take one cup of roasted coconut mixture from the pan carefully, keep it aside separately for later use.
    Now add the sweetened condensed milk and mix well to combine with the coconut mixture in the pan.
    adding condensed milk to coconut mixture
  • Cook the contents in low heat for about 3 to 4 minutes, while you keep stirring frequently as needed, so the contents won't burn.

  • Once it is cooked, turn off the stove and add the remaining 1 cup of coconut (that we kept aside) also to the cooked mixture.

To make the coconut ladoo

  • Transfer this prepared ladoo mixture to a flat surface.

  • While the mixture is still warm, quickly make ladoos by taking some mixture in your hands and forming small balls out of the mixture to form the ladoos.
    making coconut ladoo
  • Transfer the prepared ladoo to a different serving dish, preferrably a large plate.
    Similarly make all ladoos from the mixture before the mixture cools down (if the mixture cools down too much, it will become difficult to form the ladoos).

  • You may serve the ladoos at room temperature as soon as it cools down or you may keep them in the refrigerator for later use, if you are not serving the same day.

This recipe makes about 24 medium sized coconut ladoos.
Also you may halve the recipe by reducing the ingredients accordingly, if you do not have this amount of each ingredients at home or if you do not want to make this many ladoos at once.
For example, if you want to make just 12 coconut ladoos, you can use just 2 cups of coconut and about 7 oz of condensed milk (about ¾ cup and 2 tablespoons of condensed milk will be approx. equal to 7 oz).
