I always make these laddoos for nearly every festival in my home…and it’s so easy and fuss-free! My absolute favourite! 😁 So this time around, I’ve made it for Diwali! 🎊🎆
These laddoos are moist, soft and slightly chewy...given that they are made of condensed milk. Too easy to make…if I must say! There is no chance that one can go wrong…I have made these so many times…that I have actually lost count😀
This is not a family recipe, because my Mom makes them in a different way….very tedious according to me! So I have never even attempted her recipe to this day😜
This recipe requires very little prepping…let’s get started..
Yield: 12 medium laddoos
Equipment: a non-stick wok/pan, measuring cups/ spoons, a spatula.
1+1/2 cup Rava (sooji/ semolina…I used the fine variety)
1/2 cup desiccated coconut
1 cup condensed milk
2 tbsp ghee
a pinch of cardamom pwd (Elaichi pwd…optional)
garnish as per your choice…I used some strands of saffron
Heat ghee in a nonstick wok, add the Rava and roast it until it becomes slightly golden, it takes about 5-6 mins on medium flame. Then add the desiccated coconut into the roasted rava, further roast them together for 5 mins. Then add cardamom pwd (optional) & the condensed milk. Mix everything well on low flame and cook for about 5 mins, you will then see the mixture coming together like a thick dough. Turn off the flame.
Let the dough cool down for 10 mins. Grease your palms with some ghee and make laddoos with the dough. Keep the laddoos in the fridge for 15 mins. Then remove them from the fridge and re-shape them so that they are nice and round. That’s it! Done😉 they keep well for 4-5 days even without refrigeration. Enjoy!
If you wish, you can fried raisins and nuts too in the dough and make laddoos…but I like them plain! 😋
Yummy all the way!
