Recipe Notes

  • You can use fresh coconut too, just make sure its finely grated.
  • Always roast the coconut on medium to low heat else the coconut might burn.
  • Do not over cook the ladoo mixture after adding the jaggery syrup else the ladoos will become very dry.
  • Bind the ladoos while the mixture is still luke warm.
  • If the ladoo mixture becomes dry while binding the ladoos, add some melted ghee. Mix well and bind the ladoos.
