    I used store brought finely shredded coconut in this recipe but using fresh coconut will definitely enhance the taste. So if possible, use fresh coconut. Also these coconut ladoos can be made in so many ways, these I made using condensed milk but one can also make them in the traditional way using sugar syrup. The condensed milk just saves time.

     

    Method

    1. Put the finely shredded coconut in a pan and roast for 2 minutes at low flame.

    2. Add the cardamom powder (optional) and mix.

    3. Add the condensed milk and mix till all the coconut is coated with condensed milk.
