Coconut Laddoo with Milkmaid Recipe

Hi guys,

Hope you are enjoying this festive season. I have been really busy in the past few days so couldn’t share any festive posts. But then I realised I still haven’t shared my coconut laddoo with milkmaid recipe and I thought let’s post it now. I know I’m very little late to post diwali special recipe but since it is a quick and easy-to-make sweet dish, I think this is perfect to share on last minute (for procrastinators like me 😉 ).


Coconut Laddoo with Milkmaid recipe

Makes 14 – 16 small laddoo


Desiccated Coconut grated – 1.5 cups tightly packed + for rolling the laddoo

Milkmaid – 1/2 tin or 3/4 cup

Cardamom powder – 1/2 teaspoon

Nuts and dry fruits chopped – as you desire


Step 1: In a non-stick pan, mix milkmaid and desiccated coconut and heat it. Add cardamom powder and mix. Cook this mixture until it starts thickening. Stir occasionally.


Step 2: Once the mixture begins to thicken, keep stirring it regularly. Cook until the mixture begins to leave the side of the pan and fat is released.

Step 3: Add in chopped nuts and dry fruits of your choice, mix and let it cool.


Step 4: Once the mixture is cool enough to handle, make small laddoo of it. Roll the laddoo in desiccated coconut and plate it.

Coconut Laddoo with Milkmaid is an easy and quick sweet dish which can be made at any occasion even when you don’t have enough time. You don’t have milkmaid, you can try making coconut laddoo with milk powder.
