Coconut Ladoo in the Microwave
Coconut Ladoo in the Microwave can be made in just a few easy steps. This dish can be prepared and served in under 20 minutes. You can also choose between a multitude of fillings including nuts and dried fruit. This is a simple recipe to try for your Diwali celebrations.
1 cup of shredded, desiccated unsweetened coconut
¼ cup of shredded coconut for coating
½ cup sweetened condensed milk
2 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon ghee
¼ teaspoon cardamom powder
2 drops pink food colouring
Add the desiccated coconut to a microwave safe bowl and warm it up for at least 1 minute, occasionally stirring in-between. This will therefore release a strong coconut flavour.
You will then add the condensed milk, milk and ghee to the coconut and mix well.
Place the mixture into the microwave for a total of 2-3 minutes. Make sure you take it out EVERY 30 seconds and stir it well. Make sure you keep an eye on this as it can burn easily as some microwaves vary in wattage.
When the coconut mix is done it will form a soft dough. Then add cardamom powder and mix well.
To make Ladoo’s, take about a tablespoon of the dough in your hands and roll it in a circular motion between your palms to form a soft ball. If you would like to add a filling this is when you would do so. To finish the dish, coat each Ladoo in the reserved desiccated coconut and decorate.
