Even though Diwali is my the most favourite festival ever; I absolutely love playing Holi; well who would not love to get drenched in colours 😀
Being a food blogger, I absolutely enjoy celebrating every festival because Food makes me build more memories.

So this Holi I thought of sharing this super simple and easy recipe of Paan Coconut Laddu with you all because well if you know me then I am totally into quick and easy recipes; I just do not have the patience to make traditional Indian sweets.. 😛
This recipe is totally inspired by my friend Manali’s Paan Coconut Laddus; that I had bookmarked ages back.
This Paan Coconut Laddu has an amazingly refreshing taste to it. This makes it perfect for Holi. The chilled Thandai and this refreshing Paan Cococnut Laddu would be so amazing together.
If not this Paan Coconut Laddu then you must definitely give this Paan Shots a try, a must for any festival if you ask me.
I also have made few other simple Indian sweets that you can try for this Holi season. Before we jump on to the reicpe linking them here for your quick reference.

Here is the detailed recipe:
Paan Coconut Laddu is an instant no-cook version of an Indian sweet that is flavoured with Paan (Betel leaves) and coconut perfect for any festivities.
- 1 cup Desiccated coconut
- 4 nos Paan leaves
- 1/4 tin Condensed Milk
- drop of green food colour
- 1/4 cup Water (refer notes)
- 3 tbsp Gulkand
- 2 tbsp Mixed nuts chopped
- more desiccated coconut to roll
Take chopped mixed nuts of your choice and add it to the gulkand. Combine together and keep it aside.
Chop the paan leaves and transfer it to a blender. Add the condensed milk and green food colour. Blend until combined. Add little water at a time and blend until it is homogenous.
Add this blended mixture to the desiccated coconut and combine until well mixed.
Grease your palms with some ghee. Take a small portion of the coconut paan mixture and make a roundel. Flatten it out. Stuff some gulkand filling in the centre and again shape it back to a laddu.
Repeat the process until all the mixture is used up.
Finally, roll the laddus onto some desiccated coconut spread onto a plate and store in an air tight container.
1. You need just enough water to blend the mixture easily. If it becomes too watery you can always adjust the mixture by adding some more desiccated coconut to it.
Basically water is used just to make the grinding part easier. So you will have to adjust it accordingly.
Pin it for later
I will see you soon with yet another recipe
