Tapioca Laddus (Pindaloo ke Laddu) were my grandma’s favourite when I was a child. She loved eating these as a snack in the late afternoon. I still remember how she would pop a whole laddu in her mouth and chew it with her gums as she had not a single tooth left to help her in her endeavour. She would still enjoy all the juicy bites and every bit of it. It was more fun watching her eat than eating it myself.
5 cups grated Tapioca (2 medium size)
2 cups Coconut (finely grated)
1/2 can Nestle/Clic cream (175gm)
Sugar – 1 cup
1. Wash and clean the tapioca in running water. Boil them in a big pot of water. When they are done their thick skin would start cracking. Remove, drain and let them cool down first, then grate them coarsely.
2. Add 1 1/2 cups of the grated coconut, sugar and cream to the grated tapioca.
3. Mix everything well. Make them into round balls (laddus) then roll them in the grated coconut and set aside. Place them all one by one in coloured baking cups and chill them in the fridge. Enjoy when chilled.
