Sesame-Coconut Laddu (kobbari- nuvvulu laddu) - Diwali Special

Actually I was planning to make burfis and landed up innovating this delicious laddus!! I never thought it would turn out so yum:)


1 cup freshly grated coconut
1 cup white sesame seeds
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
1 tsp crushed cardamom powder
2 tsp Dry fruits
1 tsp ghee


In a pan heat ghee and roast the dry fruits (cashew nuts, almonds, raisins)till golden and set aside. In the same pan add sugar and water to make sugar syrup of one strand consistency. Simultaneously heat another pan and roast sesame seeds on low heat till slightly brown. When the sesame seeds cool down grind it into powder.
To the sugar syrup add grated coconut and cardamom powder. When they both blend well turn off the heat. Add the sesame seed powder and dry fruits to the mixture and fold well. Make laddus, garnish with rosted sesame seeds and serve:). Tips- If you feel the mixture is too dry and is not sticking together add 2 tbsp ghee to it.

This goes to CFK- Festive food hosted by Suma.

Sesame and Coconut is a nice innovation. Healthy one too.

It will be nice, if you could send this to my event Diwali Sweets and Snacks.

Liked the combo of sesame and coconut... Thanks for the recipe which just uses sugar. Most of the coconut ladoo recipes which I have seen uses condensed milk.
