Rose Coconut Laddoo

What is a laddoo? According to wikipedia "Laddu or laddoo or avinsh is a sphere-shaped sweet originating from the Indian subcontinent." Laddoos are typically made with gram flour. But, if you know me, I am anything but conventional and I set my own rules when it comes to cooking.


Swaying from traditional methods and working creatively in the kitchen can lead to catastrophic results sometimes, especially when it comes to traditional desserts like laddoo. Therefore, I was extra careful on what goes into this recipe and kept it real simple. This is a quick and easy dessert which can be substituted as a healthy breakfast or a snack.


Tip: Just add a cupcake liner and serve these delicious Rose Coconut Laddoo as a party snack.
