Makes about 20
What do I need?
2 ripe mangoes
1 ½ cups desiccated coconut, divided
½ cup sweetened condensed milk
How do I make it?
Peel mangoes, remove seed and roughly chop. Add to a blender with 3 tbsp water and blitz until smooth.
Heat a non-stick frying pan over low heat. Add 1 cup of coconut to the pan and toast, stirring constantly until it is fragrant – the coconut should not turn brown.
Add pureed mango and stir to combine. Add condensed milk and continue stirring until the mixture comes together into a fudgy consistency, about 5 minutes.
Remove from heat and set aside to cool slightly.
When cool enough to handle, pinch a small amount of the mixture out and roll with your hands into a ball. Roll the ball in remaining coconut. Repeat until all mixture is used and store ladoos in the fridge.
