Coconut Badam ladoo ,easy laddu recipe

Coconut Badam ladoo is an easy sweet recipe, made with almond(badam) powder, desiccated coconut, sugar and ghee as the main ingredients. During our India trip in June, my brother in law passed me a packet of almond powder to me and told to try some recipes with that. This week i thought i will post some Janmashtami | Krishna jayanthi recipes, also realised that today is Raksha bandan too. I first wanted to post Rava coconut ladoo. Then when i opened my freezer,saw this almond powder and tried this badam coconut laddu. It turned out very well and got ready in 20 minutes. Check out my full collection of Janmastami| Krishna jayanthi recipes and Raksha bandan recipes.
Scroll down till the end for tips and badam coconut laddu with step wise pictures.

     Melted ghee  1/4 cup
     Sugar   1/2 cup
     Cardamom  2 pods
     Cashew nuts  1 tblsp

  • Now add the remaining hot melted ghee, little by little and mix well with a spoon. Ensure that the ghee should be hot.

Notes:
  1. Almond flour can be replaced with sooji.
  2. If using fresh coconut, roast it for few minutes and add. But shelf life will be for a day only.
  3. You can use kopra | dry coconut too. Grate it and pulse in the mixie and use it . You can dry roast it too.
  4. If you want to make almond powder at home, dry roast almonds for few minutes and cool them. Grind it into a powder. Almond powder is ready for badam ladoo.
  5. Badam ladoo will stay good for 4-5 days if it is refrigerated.
