Coconut Laddu

Photobucket

These sinfully delicious, decadently rich and visually appealing laddus are apt for any celebration and are easy ones to prepare in no time. It is such a simple and quick recipe that even a novice cook can woo and amaze guests with these mouthwatering laddus. And surprisingly, the recipe needs only two ingredients and about 10 - 15 minutes of time. If you are able to stir and shape the mixture into balls, you are eligible to try this. :)
These were a part of my early 'condensed milk' cooking escapades, about a dozen years ago, along with this equally delicious condensed milk halwa / theratti paal.

Ingredients for 20 laddus:
14 oz condensed milk
14 oz + 1/2 cup sweetened coconut flakes

Laddu making process:
* Pour the condensed milk and 14 oz sweetened coconut flakes into a thick bottomed kadai or a nonstick pan.
* Cook on medium flame for about 8 - 10 minutes, stirring quite often. Turn off the stove.
* When the mixture is cool, take about a lime sized mixture and shape into a ball. Repeat the process with the remaining mixture.
* Now roll the shaped laddus in the 1/2 cup coconut reserved, to avoid any stickiness if present. Store them in a container.

Harini,
To be guilt free, I am planning to share some with my neighbor. The extra pounds I lost during Indira's Jihva workout, seem to come back with vengeance with all these goodies I have been cooking recently.
Thanks for the award.
