Mango, Almond and Coconut Ladoos.

I have been travelling right up to the first day of the Diwali celebrations . Totally jet lagged I needed to make some quick and easy sweet recipe. With a maraton of Diwali preparations, I managed to make two sweets within a couple of hours. You can also check out my Pistachio barfi recipe here.

These Mango, Almond and Coconut ladoos are speedy to make and all the ingredients are store cupboard staples that I had in my pantry. They definitely were a hit with my family.

They are delicious with the tropical mango flavours which goes really well with the almonds and coconut. (Ladoo is an Indian name given to any sweet that made in around ball shape) .The mixture can also be set in a tray and cut into squares if you are limited on time.

Yield: 24
