Coconut laddu




  • 2 cups coconut fresh, grated
  • 1 cup jaggery
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 teaspoon cardamom powder optional


  • Heat a thick bottom pan and add jaggery and water
  • Bring to boil and let the jaggery melt completely. Simmer for 2-3 minutes
  • Add the coconut and mix well
  • Keep cooking the coconut on low flame until the moisture evaporates and it comes together (approximately 15-20 minutes). Stir occasionally so that it doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan
  • Add cardamom powder and mix well
  • Transfer the mixture into a plate and let it sit for a minute
  • Wet your hands with some cold water and make small round ball shapes while the mixture is still hot
  • The laddus are ready to be served


  • Make sure the jaggery doesn't get too sticky. Else the laddus will turn very hard
  • Shape the laddoos while the mixture is still hot. Else, the mixture will harden and you won’t be able to shape them
