Gajar Laddoos


  • 2 cups carrot, grated
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon powder (can also use 1 cinnamon stick instead)
  • 4 cardamons
  • 1 tbsp ghee
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup evaporated milk
  • 1 cup dried coconut (I used desiccated)


  1. Peel and grate carrots – or use a food processor. In a saucepan, melt the ghee and add the spices after a few seconds.
  2. Add the carrots and saute on medium heat for approx 5 minutes – carrots will be soft and water released from them will have dried.
  3. Keeping the pan on medium heat, add the sugar and milk, heating until the milk has been absorbed by the carrots.
  4. Add 1/4 cup of dried coconut and evaporated milk to the saucepan until the this mixture has almost dried.
  5. Leave the mixture to cool for approx 10-15 minutes. When ready, roll the mixture with greased hands to equal sizes.
  6. Drop each ball in the remaining coconut and arrange on a lightly greased plate.
  7. To store longer: store in the fridge.
