Ladoos are obviously one of the most popular Indian sweets. These are usually made with a variety of ingredients like coconut, chickpea flour (besan), oats etc. And in this recipe, we are talking about the classic coconut ladoo loaded with blueberry flavor.
How To Make Blueberry Ladoo
Start this blueberry ladoo recipe with a basic coconut ladoo mixture. To reduce the cooking time, I decided to go with a simplified version of ladoo made with condensed milk. It’s super quick and easy.
First, roast the coconut in a frying pan over low flame. The basic idea is to lightly toast the coconut without browning it. The toasted flavor of coconut is key in this recipe. Again, desiccated coconut works perfect in this ladoo recipe.
You’ll need to add the condensed milk to the toasted coconut. The right combo of condensed milk and toasted coconut make them perfectly sweet and crunchy. Give this a quick stir and add in the blueberry purée. The blueberry purée is made with thawed frozen blueberries. Just give it a quick whizz in the blender to create the purple purée.
Now the magic happens. As all these ingredients are combined together, the mixture will slowly start to leave the sides of the pan and stick together. At this stage, you can turn off the heat and leave the mixture to cool completely. It’s easier to make round balls out of cooked mixture.
You can roll the blueberry ladoos in more desiccated coconut if you like. Garnish them with chopped nuts.
Heavenly sweet treat to brighten up your festivities!
