You are at home, chilling and enjoying your day and some of your close relatives or friends drop by unannounced, you fix a meal in a jiffy and want to serve some dessert too.

What do you make when you are short on time but want to serve something delicious for dessert? Make these 5 minute delicious coconut laddoos.

This recipe needs just 2 ingredients, but you can add some more optional ingredients to make it even more special.

I always keep condensed milk cans and dry coconut powder in my pantry, these 2 ingredients are used in making many dishes.

For my other Nariyal barfi recipe, check here.

In a nutshell, you just need to add the condensed milk to the coconut powder and make delicious balls out of it.

This laddoo recipe is very versatile, just take these two ingredients (coconut and condensed milk) and ad or subtract the other suggested ingredients to get a new flavor everytime.

Let’s start with the Ingredients and directions;


Dessicated Coconut powder/ Nariyal burada: 2 cups or around 175gms

Condensed milk: 200 gms, also known as Milkmaid

Ghee: 1 tbsp (optional, but it gives a good fragrance and flavor)

Gulkand: 2 tbsp (optional)

Cardamom / Elaichi: 2-3 pods powdered (optional), I didn’t add

Dryfruits: optional (I didn’t add)


Make sure the dessicated coconut is not too coarse and is fresh, meaning it does not smell of oil. If it is very coarse, just pulse it in the mixie to get a finer texture.

Take a heavy bottomed pan and put ghee, add the dessicated coconut (keep a tbsp or two aside for rolling the laddoos later ) and stir for a minute on low flame, add the condensed milk and mix well.

Switch off the flame and mix the two well with a spoon. Take it out on a plate and at this stage you can add powdered cardamoms, any dryfruits like raisins, or pistachios. I added a tbsp of Gulkand or rose jam for added fragrance and flavor.

Make sure the mixture is not very hot and then make small balls out of it. Roll the laddoos in some dessicated coconut and you are done. Delicious Nariyal laddoos are ready to be enjoyed.

Additional Ingredients that can be added:


Raisins, pistachios, slivered almonds, cashew bits.

DryFruit powder can be added for extra nutrition.

Bits of soft gooey dates can be added for extra sweetness and nutrition. Soft dates like Kimia.

Rose essence

Sweet Pan readymade mix

Charoli / Chironji can be placed in the centre.

If you like Pink laddoos, it can be made with the addition of some Rooh Afza sharbat, adjust the amount of condensed milk then.
