Gulkand filled Coconut paan ladoo is a new twist to a simple coconut ladoo .I wanted to try something different ,So, I tried this variation of coconut laddoo; with paan(Betel leaves).
These Paan Coconut Ladoos are super easy to make and tastes delicious. In India, paan is had as a mouth freshener and a digestive after meals. In these Paan Coconut Ladoos, I have combined the flavors of meetha paan and coconut and they turned out amazing.


1. In a food processor, add chopped paan leaves and condensed milk. pulse till both are well combined. set aside.

2. Heat ghee in a pan on medium heat. once ghee is hot, add desiccated coconut and roast for 5 minutes on medium-low heat.

3. Add the condensed milk – paan mixture and stir to combine. you may add few drops of green food color at this point.

4. Cook for another 2 minutes on low heat, mixture will thicken. remove from heat and let the mixture cool down a bit.

5. Grease your hands with little ghee, take small portion from the coconut mixture, flatten it and add 1/2 tp 1 teaspoon of gulkand in the center.

6. Bring the edges together and roll to form a ladoo.

7. Roll the prepared ladoo in desiccated coconut. repeat the same process with the remaining ladoos.

8. Keep the paan coconut ladoo refrigerated.
