Sometimes I get sweet cravings and I end up eating chocolates. Being a chocolate lover I don’t mind it but when we are trying to make life a little healthier those little bites of chocolates also counts in sugar intake. So to reduce my sugar intake I came up with this easy and quick sweet recipe which is loaded with healthy stuff and you won’t have that guilt feeling after eating them. Using coconut we can make this ladoo and they are extremely tasty. Try them to believe it.
Let’s jump in to our recipe,
- Desiccated Coconut (1 cup)
- Chopped dry fruit of your choice
- Ghee (1 tsp)
- Jaggery (1/2 cup grated)
- Almond powder (if you like it or it is available)
- Elaichi or cardamom powder (pinch of)
Take a pan and keep it on gas. Switch on the gas and put ghee in the pan. Now add desiccated coconut to it and mix it. Now add dry fruits of your choice and mix them. Cook them till the coconut become golden brown. Don’t overcook it else it will destroy the nice color and taste of your ladoo.
Now add jaggery to it and mix it well. Add almond powder if you want and also add elaichi or cardamom powder to it and mix all well. Jaggery will start meting and you will get nice bind to make your ladoo.
Now switch off the gas flame and let the mixture get cooled a little. Don’t let it get completely cooled down else you won’t be able to make ladoo. You can use baking try and spread them to make square pieces out of it, but i prefer small size ladoo more. So yeah once it is cooled down a little start making ladoo using your hands. Make round balls out of it. Your healthy and sweet coconut ladoo are ready.
They are made with jaggery and of course home cooked food is way better than out side package food so enjoy your sweet treats without any guilts. They are super easy to make and you can enjoy them as healthy sweet option.
