Mango Coconut Laddos

Mangoes are called as king of fruits. These are generally sweet, although the taste and texture of the flesh varies ; some have a soft, pulpy texture, some may have a fibrous texture.

Mango trees are cultivated in many regions of India, and now its farming has been extended wide across the world in many continents.

These are nutritionally rich fruits with unique flavor and heath promoting qualities. These are rich in pre-biotic dietary fiber, vitamins, minerals. 
These are good source of Vitamin A and Potassium carbohydrates.

So mangoes have so much nutritional value and juicy sweet character and mango season is going on so why don't we cook mango recipe this summer

Here I am sharing a  sweet recipe which is full of mango flavor and would give you more mango craving.

Ingredients: for 15 laddos

  1. Coconut powder: 1cup or 200 gram
  2. Milk: 1 glass
  3. Milk powder : 1 tsp
  4. Ripe Mango : 1 medium sized (I took alfanso)
  5. Sugar: 100 gram ( I used sugar powder)
  6. Cardamom powder: 1tsp ( Optional)
  7. Sprinkle: 2 - 3 spoon (Optional)

Method of Preparation:

To make Mango coconut ladoo,we first make mango sauce.

Mango sauce Preparation:
  1. Take one medium sized mango. Peel it and take its pulp out in mixer grinder jar. 

        2.   Grind it and make it mango puree.
        3.  Take a pan and heat it. Put mango puree in pan  and stir it.
        4.  Add half of sugar i.e, 50 gram in mango puree. Stir it continuously.

        5.  It will start thickening and sauce like texture.
        6.  When texture become thick, switch off gas. To check right consistency of thickness of sauce,              take some sauce in spoon and roll it down. If it is rolling over spoon but not falling down                    from spoon, then consistency is ok.
        7.  Now sauce is ready. Keep it side for cool.

Now we will prepare evaporated milk (or Khoya)

Evaporated milk preparation:

  1. Take a pan and put it on gas stove. Switch on gas and put milk in pan. Stir it continuously on medium flame. Add milk powder and stir it.
        2.  After 10 to 15 minutes, it will start thickening and leaving surface of pan. Continuously stir it. When it becomes thick like semi solid texture, add rest of the sugar. I have used sugar powder here. Mix well and stir continuously.

        3.  After 5 to 7 minutes, when texture become thick and solid then switch off gas and let it be cool.
For laddoos

  1. For laddoo, take coconut powder. I made coconut powder home only from coconut. You can use market bought coconut powder also.

        2.  Take mango sauce, condensed milk and coconut powder in a bowl and mix well and make a dough.
        3.  Divide this dough in to 15 lemon size ball. Make round shape of ladoo of each dough portion. I just missed to take photos of these two steps, but steps are easy and we to mix all ingredients together only here.
       4.  Mango coconut laddoos are ready . Do topping of your choice. I did topping from sprinkles.

Shelf life: 

It can be stored in freeze upto 3 to 4 days.


  1. Mango sauce thickness matters so give attention on that.
  2. You can use store bought condensed milk too if you  have lack of time or for your convenience.
