Coconut Laddu


1. Grated Coconut - 1 cup
2. Shredded Jaggery - 1 cup
3. Cardamon Powder - 1 tsp
4. Chopped Cashew's - 3 tbsp's
5. Chopped Almond's - 2 tbsp's
6. Raisin's - 1 tbsp


In a Thick Bottomed Pan or in a Kadaai, add the Grated Coconut and Jaggery and keep stirring, till the Jaggery melt's and starts sticking to the coconut. Add the Cardamon Powder and Mix well.

Keep stirring on slow flame for about 5 minute's, till the coconut Jaggery mix starts sticking to the kadaai and slightly get browned.

Remove from the flame, when the coconut-jaggey mix, sticks to the Pan and add all the dry
fruits, Cashew's, almond's, and Raisin's. Chopped Dates will also be a great addition.

Cool them for 2 minute's. apply oil on your palm and start shaping the coconut-jaggery mix into ball's. if its too hot, wait till the heat is bearable by your palms and start shaping them into balls.

You can have it instant or allow them to set for about 5-6 hrs. it gets firm and tastes good too.

So if you have excess coconut on hand, dont miss to try this laddu and treat your family.
