Coconut laddoo is one amongst those many amazing Indian sweets my mom has always made for us (me and my sis) when we were kids. Those long elaborated procedure of scraping the coconut, boiling milk, reducing it to make laddoos have certainly changed over a period of time. Now we have everything fast and instant. Being a home science student in school, coconut laddoo was the first dessert which i learned during my classes. Coconut itself is such a wonderful fruit that gives awesome flavor and texture to both sweet n savory.
My son has a sweet tooth like me and often craves for something sweet. Today while cleaning up my pantry i came across a jar of dessicated coconut. That was when i decided to make these instant melt in mouth bombs that can give an explosion of flavors. Didn’t use milk reduction as i had a tin of Amul Mithai Mate at home. What else do i need……ummmm cardamom? Well yes, coconut laddoos are incomplete without the essence of cardamom. Three ingredients and just a 10 min time investment, and Voila!
Just to give an Urban touch i assembled them in bamboo skewers with some cherries (optional).
