Coconut Laddu

Coconut Ladoo is one of my favorite coconut dessert recipe to date. Just a few ingredients, a few minutes in the kitchen and you are ready for a heavenly experience with soft-on-bite rich coconut sweet. Coconut Laddu make for perfect after meal nibbles or a party dessert.

Coconut works beautifully in sweetened condensed milk. You can also make excellent chocolate truffles with it substituting the cream.

      Dairy whitener is basically a mixture of skimmed milk powder and sugar. I used Nestle Brand. You will find it at stores like More, Spencer’s, Food World.

    Hi Sailu,

    This dessert looks very yummy. I would love to try it but I havent heard of diary milk whitener here in US. Could we use a milk powder or could you suggest something different. Your recipes turn out great everytime. Wish I could also present it as well as you do.

    Many thanks.

      You can use skimmed milk powder or milk powder that is probably sweetened (usually fed to babies). :)

    hi…just a doubt…can I use milk instead of dairy whitener. If yes, what would be the quantity?

      I wouldn’t suggest milk. Skimmed milk powder or milk powder will work.
