How to make Coconut Ladoos - step by step recipe:

  • Grate the coconut very finely. Now put it in a pan on medium flame.
  • Roast it for a minute. Add the jaggery powder.
  • Mix the jaggery very nicely with the coconut. Continuously stir the mixture on medium flame.
  • Turn off the flame when the jaggery and coconut are well mixed together and cooked completely. You will see the mixture will bind together and it will become sticky.
  • Let it cool down for 3-4 minutes.
  • Then take a small portion of the coconut mixture on your palm (greased with oil) and make small ladoo out of it with slight pressure and giving it a round shape.
  • Let the ladoos rest and cool down completely at room temperature. Coconut Ladoo is ready to serve.
