Mango, Badam, Coconut Ladoo - The season of fast and feast is here !

It's the weekend, so I thought I'd tickle your taste buds with these truly moreish Mango, Badam Coconut Ladoos, beware they are sumptuous and absolutely delightful that you won't stop at one !

Time has been flying by and with a sudden close of the eye more than a half a year has gone by, I can't believe it. We know the days passes by so quickly but it seems as if the seasons are changing as quick. While we are having sunny spell here, monsoon has arrived in India and rainy season brings along so many festivals in India.

And once again it's the time of the year when so many traditional and religious fasts and festivals are lined up during the Chaturmaas ( four months of the monsoon season ). OR should I say it's 'The season of fast and Feast' !!! In this stretch of four months it's time for you to to reconnect with yourselves and celebrate abundance and with pomp.

With very cultural diversities, every region of India has their own styles  to rejoice the monsoon season, but there are some festivals celebrated and enjoyed by everyone throughout India and Indians around the globe and all these festivities calls for a profusion of traditional or modern delicacies to enjoy on your plate.  Although any kind of dishes or food you can enjoy during this festive season, but sweets adds a massive attraction to the menu.

Mango, Badam , Coconut Ladoo, ( Mango, Almond and Coconut Truffles ) are perfect to celebrate this festive season, they can be used for offerings, you can devour if you are fasting or great for giving as a gift.

After my last year's post of phenomenal Saffron, Pistachio, Coconut Ladoo , I wanted to try coconut with some other flavours, so I thought of a combination of almond, coconut and mango and I am so pleased to let you know that all the flavours in this Ladoos are marvellous, have a first bite so many flavours will explode in your mouth and your brain and heart both will congratulate you for eating such a marvellous piece of heaven !!!

What a delightful combination it is :)

If you are a not fan of coconut yet, perhaps one of these recipes might just change your mind :)

Notes :-
I have used coconut powder and kesar canned mango pulp for this recipe.

Continuously keep stirring and cooking until mixture gets thicker. 
Now add mango pulp and mix well.
