Instant Peanut Coconut Ladoo / Festive Cooking


 Sharad Navratri is just around the corner and those who celebrate this festival may be busy in cleaning their house and preparing for the 9 day festivity. 9 forms of the Goddess Durga are worshiped during this festival and most of the devotees observe Navratri Fast or vrat for all 9 days and have only a single meal during the day. Many special dishes are made during Navratri , some to be had as fasting food ( food which can be had while fasting / Vrat ka khana ) and some to be offered to goddess Durga as Bhog / Naivedhyam. How about making a delicious and quick dessert, which can serve both as a fasting food and Naivedhyam ?


Here's such  a quick , fasting recipe with just 3 ingredients !! Yes just three..the recipe calls for use of  scrapped fresh Coconut , roasted Peanut powder and powdered Sugar. Just blend these three ingredients and bind them into ball shape. Ta da you are done ! If you have roasted peanuts ready at hand , then this is a no cook recipe . This Peanut Coconut ladoo are not only very easy to make but they are filling and can be made in a jiffy.


The ladoos serve best for any festive occasion. Apart from being a filling fasting food ( food for vrat) , these white balls are loved by one and all. Can be packed as a healthy snack for kids or simply enjoyed to satisfy ones sweet cravings!!

Ingredients: 1 cup =200 ml

  • 2 cup fresh Coconut , scrapped
  • 1 1/2 cup Peanuts
  • 1/2 cup Sugar or as per taste
  • Saffron strands for garnishing (optional)

  Method:
  1. Heat up a pan on medium flame. Add peanuts to it. Roast them on low to medium heat for about 10 minutes. 

  2.  Allow the peanuts to cool down. Remove the skin by gently rubbing the roasted peanuts and grind them to a coarse powder in a grinder. Remove and keep aside. Now grind the sugar to powder.


  3.  In a large mixing bowl , combine scrapped Coconut, roasted peanut powder and powdered sugar. Mix well .


  4.  Bind the mixture to a round shape of desired size. The moisture from the fresh coconut is enough to bind the ladoos. 


  5.  Repeat the same for all the ladoos. Garnish the ladoos with Saffron strands and serve. You can refrigerate the ladoos for 2-3 days. But they taste best when fresh .

  11. I really want these ladoo now, so tempting. I am going to make for Prasad, one thing can I use desiccated coconut?

    1. Desiccated coconut will not give the moisture, fresh scrapped coconut lends to the recipe Jagruti. The moisture gives a proper binding to the ladoos as we are not using any liquid in the recipe.
