malai ladoo recipe, paneer ladoo recipe

malai ladoo is a popular sweet from the north indian cuisine. i had jotted down this recipe many many years back in my journal. so made these laddus and they were good.

the taste and texture of the ladoos is more like sandesh. this recipe just uses milk and sugar. you can add flavorings of your choice like cardamom powder, saffron, rose water or kewra water (pandanus extract).

these malai ladoos stay good for 4 to 5 days in the fridge. this recipe makes for 8 to 9 ladoos. you can easily double or triple the ingredients. i have not made the ladoos very sweet. its just sweet. for a more sweet taste do add more sugar.

  1. For how many days do we preserve malai laddoo without fridge because I want to take it in a two days journey. 🤔🤔

    • malai laddoo will need fridge. without fridge, they will spoil in some hours. these cannot be taken for a journey if just packed in a box. you will need a cold box to take them on a journey.
