"Ladoos are an Indian and Pakistani sweet. I added a twist to mine and included coconut...my family loves these. They can be enjoyed at any holiday, as a treat during tea time, etc. And they're easy to make, in my opinion." — PRECIOUS9491

ghee (clarified butter)
chickpea flour (besan)
shredded sweetened coconut
superfine (castor) sugar
Made this for a dinner party where no one had had ladoo before. Most people thought it was "interesting," and finished their ball, but didn't ask for more. This will be liked by those who do not like very sugary sweets.
I have tried several ladoo recipes and this one is the best by far. It is so good that an Indian bride recently asked me to make the ladoo for her wedding reception!!
A coffee grinder works well to grind the coconut and almonds, but I have found that cardamom seeds grind best in a mortar and pestle.
Tried it last night, followed recipe only leaving out the coconut. The besan flour tasted raw after roasting for more than 2o mins, stayed powdery and not pasty. I had to throw the entire thing out. Sorry, but I won't be making this again...
