Zhatpat Coconut Laddoo

What would you do if….

  • You’ve invited a lovely friend over lunch.
  • She’s a big time sweet tooth…
  • And you forget to make a sweet dish???

Exactly the same thing happened to me… I spend all my time in cooking a lovely kathiyawadi menu for her! I was planning to make churma laddoo on previous day but somehow couldn’t manage to do it. And I was in panic mode that morning… Thought of doing some quick halwa but that was an odd element on my menu. So here is what I did:



200 gms Milkmaid

150-200 gms Fresh coconut, grated or Desiccated coconut (I used 2nd option)


  1. Mix milkmaid and coconut in a microwave proof bowl.
  2. Microwave for 2-3 mins (in 1 min time-slot) and keep mixing in between.
  3. Let it cool down a bit.
  4. Apply ghee on your palms and make laddoos out of it.
  5. Roll them again and desiccated coconut.
  6. And it’s ready to serve!!!


You can add cardamom powder and chopped nuts into it for extra flavors, which unfortunately I missed!!!
