Paan Coconut Laddoo

Paan Coconut Laddoo  – a delicious laddoo made using paan ( betel leaves ) and coconut with gulkand (rose petals jam) stuffing.

Festive season is already here and festivals are incomplete without homemade sweets. Here is a delicious laddoo which can be made at home easily. Paan coconut laddoos are made using paan (betel leaves), coconut and condensed milk with a stuffing of gulkand.

We are in the midst of Navratri, a nine day festival dedicated to Goddess Durga. Each day of Navratri has a dedicated colour and significance attached to it. For the second day of Navratri, the colour was green. I prepared these green paan laddoos as offering to Goddess Durga.

Ingredients

1 cup dessicated coconut
1/2 cup condensed milk
4  betel leaves/paan
4 to 5 tsp gulkand (rose petals jam)
1 tsp ghee
green food colour (optional)

2 to 3 tbsp dessicated coconut to coat the laddoos
