coconut ladoos with condensed milk recipe

i had some good amount of leftover grated coconut and almost half a can of condensed milk. so decided to use both of them to make these melt in the mouth coconut ladoos and taste too good.

coconut ladoo are often made for festive occasions. i made them for the ram navami festival and have kept in the fridge. these stay good in the fridge for 4-5 days. generally only the white part of coconut is used. but the one i had grated, had both white and some brown parts. still i made the ladoos as it does not matter to me as long as the end result tastes good.
