These orange colour Indian dessert, ladoo made with mango pulp, desiccated coconut and almond flour.



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

These delicious Indian style mango and coconut truffles are fudgy and so easy to make with mango puree and coconut powder or flour.

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 pass 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 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 call 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, sweets add a massive attraction to the menu.


Mango Ladoo is perfect to celebrate any festive season, be it Diwali, Eid or Raksha Bandhan they will get all the attention.
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.

What a delightful combination it is :)

WHAT GOES IN MAKING MANGO COCONUT LADOO


Mango Pulp or Puree - I have used canned Kesar mango pulp which is Indian variety mango. You can use other variables such as Alphonso mango pulp. This canned mango pulp is available in almost all the major supermarkets and south Asian groceries. If you prefer making fresh mango puree at home, make sure you use very ripe and sweet mangoes. Before using canned pulp, taste the pulp and add condensed milk according.

Desiccated Coconut - I have used coconut powder for this recipe which is very fine desiccated coconut, but you can use any other type or can be used fresh coconut too, this step might take more cooking time.

Almond Powder - In Hindi known as Badam Powder, readily available in any store. If you want to skip it, it's totally fine.

Condensed Milk - You'll need sweetened condensed milk for this recipe. It is available in all the shops, in India it is known as Milkmaid.

Khoya/Mawa - I love khoya in my Indian desserts, it brings richness and fresh flavours to the dessert. Don't have khoya handy, you may use milk powder instead or skip it totally.

Cardamom Powder - In Indian desserts, always use green cardamom, it not only brings the great flavours and aroma to the dessert but it helps you digest those rich and heavy sweets too.

I always keep whole cardamom in my kitchen cupboard and whenever a recipe calls for it, quickly remove the seeds from the pod, crush it in pestle and mortar. You can use shop-bought cardamom powder too.

Ghee - Ghee or clarified butter is an essential ingredient for Indian sweets, can be made at home by just melting unsalted butter in a pan for five minutes or use shop-bought.

For garnish use chopped nuts or totally skip it.

HOW TO MAKE MANGO, BADAM COCONUT LADOO


1. Heat ghee in a heavy-based pan or kadai and roast the coconut and almond powder without going brown.

2. Add condensed milk and combine everything, cook for a couple of minutes then add grated khoya.

3. Cook the mixture until it thickens, add mango pulp and continually keep stirring the mixture.

4. The mixture will get thicker and will separate from the pan, turn off the heat and add cardamom powder.

5. Remove the mixture into another plate and let it cool completely, chill in the fridge.

6. Make ladoos and garnish it with the nuts.

    1. Hi , No coconut flour is very very fine. If your coconut powder is fine then you can use in this recipe. Hope this helps.
