Soft Crunchy "Coconut Cookies-Ladoo"

I feel like late though but i have developed sweet tooth :) This was for my hubby, from long he was telling to make Coconut Burfi, i too like coconut sweet flavour but i still feel coconut burfi have chewy texture. And after a long wait and search this is the best recipe i got. This is from Chef Alia. This is real Yummy, Soft and Crunchy and just perfect for coconut dessert with very few ingredients and amazing texture inside out. This recipe call for 1 extra large egg and being vegetarian i am using egg substitute (egg replacer) here, you can use Egg instead of egg substitute. Within 4 hours i finished eating 3-4 ladoo (No wait gain please this time :D) and here i found new dish for my breakfast-snacks list. You can give cookie shape, my baking tray is small so i did ladoo to put more at one time. Hope you enjoy this with your family and friends.

Serving 15 cookies approx

  • Dessicated Coconut 150gms (Finer texture)
  • Semolina (Sooji) 50gms (approx 1/3 cup)
  • Unsalted Butter 2 and 1/2 tablespoon melted or vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon egg replacer with 2 teaspoon of water (as per packet instruction)
  • Powdered Sugar 50gms (approx 1/2 cup) + 3 tablespoon for dusting
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract or Almond Extract
  • Pinch of Salt 
  • 1 teaspoon of Baking Powder


Preheat oven at 180 degree. In a bowl beat egg replacer and sugar untill you get a whitish mixture. Add 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract and beat again for 30 seconds. Mix remaining all the dry ingredients in another bowl and add egg replacer and sugar mix, mix lightly with hands and than add butter and mix again evenly. Cover the mixture and let it rest for 30 minutes. Now take walnut size ball mix in your hand and give it a shape very lightly, roll it in powdered sugar and place it on baking tray. Bake it for 10 minutes, let it cool down completely for atleast 30 minutes and dust it with powdered sugar. Put in air tight container at room temperature or you can refrigerate it. Serve and indulge yourself.

Don't press mix very hard while giving shape, if you feel your cookie mix is wet after resting too than you can add little semolina to it and mix again. If dessicated coconut is long grain place it in food processor or mixture to give it finer texture. Don't over bake cookies it may turn hard after cooling down.

Keep Rocking and Keep Cooking with Gangnam Style..
