Desiccated Coconut and Mango Ladoo

A beautiful ladoo, that’s loaded with the fresh flavor of desiccated coconut and mango. The two flavor come together so well , that I bet no one can resist having more than one ! They are loved by kids and adults alike.

The grand fiesta of the 10 day long Ganesh festival is going to end today , with Ganesh Visarjan. There will be lots of processions , dancing , music and the quintessential Dhol Tashe with it.

The celebrations today won’t be complete without some sweets. So today made these soft , fudgy and full of flavor, Desiccated coconut and mango ladoo.

I used desiccated coconut , full cream milk and mango pulp for the recipe. You can even use fresh grated coconut , but the time required to prepare the ladoo will increase slightly.

I definitely prefer fresh coconut , but this time had a pack of desiccated coconut lying in the refrigerator , so thought of using it up.

You can use fresh mango pulp, but as the season for fresh mangoes is over , I’ve used packaged mango pulp. If the pulp already contains sugar , you might want to alter the amount of sugar required in this recipe.

Sharing the recipe here. Go ahead and enjoy making these desiccated coconut and mango ladoo. Do write in , and tell me how you liked it. I would specially be waiting for the kids reviews 😉
