About Paan Coconut Laddoo

It’s that time of the year again when every Indian home is preparing for the festival season, from cleaning the house to cooking extravagant meals to making deity offerings.

Paan Coconut Ladoo is a famous sweet from India. This is a great and delicious sweet that is loved by people of all ages.

This is an easy sweet and I should say, this is something that you should try out! So this Diwali, save time with these delicious, Paan laddoos.

You can fill it with some dates and some coconut filling inside to make it a little tastier. The possibilities are endless.

If you are wondering what paan is then let me explain here. Paan is also known as betel leaves in English. Some people in India stuff these leaves with tobacco and eat them, and some combined, with other ingredients like rose petal preserve and fennel seeds to make “meetha paan,” or sweet paan. It is used as a mouth freshener after the meal.

Anyways, today I am sharing the way I use betel leaves in my cooking.

Why you should make this recipe?

Very few people are aware that betel leaves are extremely beneficial to one’s health. They help with digestion, weight loss, colds, coughs, oral health, and diabetes. No wonder these heart-shaped leaves have become a part of our old age tradition. Paan Coconut laddoo is not just an easy-to-make dessert but also acts as a great mouth freshener.

Basics Ingredients used to make Paan Laddoo:

Coconut: I have used freshly grated coconut to make paan laddoo, But if that is unavailable for you then you can use desiccated coconut.

Betel Leaves/Paan: Key ingredient of the recipe, so there is no substitute for Paan. 🙂

Condensed Milk: To sweeten this recipe, I used condensed milk as a sweetener. Which makes this recipe easier to make.

Others: I have used dates and tutti- frutti to fill these laddoos. you can use gulkand instead of dates and tutti frutti.

I hope you love these simple Paan Coconut Ladoos this Diwali and add them to your Diwali menu! In the coming weeks, I’ll be posting more Diwali recipes, so stay tuned!
