“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.” - by PRECIOUS9491
Original recipe yields 10 Ladoo Balls
- Heat the ghee in a wok over low heat. Stir in the chickpea flour and cook over low heat until the chickpea flour is toasted and the mixture smells fragrant, about 10 minutes. The mixture should be pasty, not powdery.
- Remove the mixture from the heat and cool slightly until it is warm, not hot. Grind the coconut, if using, in a coffee grinder until fine. Add the ground almonds, superfine sugar, ground coconut, and ground cardamom to the wok and mix thoroughly.
- While the mixture is warm, shape it into round balls that are about 1- to 1 1/4 inches in diameter. Store the ladoos in an airtight container and let them sit for 2 to 3 hours to cool completely. They can be eaten immediately, but taste better after several hours.

"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 lik..." See moree very sugary sweets."

A coffee grinder works well to ..." See moregrind the coconut and almonds, but I have found that cardamom seeds grind best in a mortar and pestle."
