One-Pot Moist and Vegan Carrot Truffles / Ladoos Using Instant Pot

Hello Foodies,
             At my back home making, gajar (carrot) ka halwa in winter is mandatory, and there i
s nothing better than gajar (carrot) ka halwa prepared by my mom with lots of love. I have prepared carrot halwa lots of time because it's my McDreamy's favorite dessert. But, I have prepared this carrot ladoos very first time, and it turned out moist, amazingly delicious, or you can say it's perfect. It's important to refrigerate ladoos/truffles once you prepared. For more flavor, try adding rose extract or almond extract. As carrot halwa is a crowd favorite, no matter what season it is, you can prepare this ladoos for any occasion. Ladoo is a ball-shaped sweet that is very popular in India. It is one of those sweets that is mainly associated with celebrations like weddings, festivals, Pooja, and many special occasions. These moist, Vegan, gluten-free carrot ladoos are unbelievably good, and they are everything you want in a ladoos and more. They are packed with full of flavors. To make them vegan, I have used coconut milk and vegan butter. If you do not follow vegan diet, you may replace coconut milk by adding cow's milk and vegan butter by adding ghee or butter that will work well too! Here, I have simplified the procedure and made this recipe a one-pot recipe.
            You just need to cook carrot and coconut milk for 3 minutes and then add sugar, almond meal, and cardamom and saute and cook until mixture becomes thick and leaves the sides of the pan. Let them cool and roll to make the carrot ladoos. Isn't it simple and easy? So give it a try and prepare this moist, vegan and classic carrot truffle or ladoos for your party and you might not have any leftovers to bring home.😊

The shelf life of Carrot Truffles/ Ladoos:

  • If refrigerated in an airtight
    container, they will be edible for 5-6 days. So you can make them ahead and refrigerate it.
  • Before eating, take ladoos out from the fridge and microwave for 30 seconds, they will taste just like freshly prepared.
  • If kept at room temperature they will be good for 1-2 days.

My Take :

  • To make non-vegan version, you can substitute coconut milk by adding cow's milk and Vegan Butter by adding ghee/Butter.
  • You can add sugar more or less according to your taste. But the addition of more sugar will need more time to get the proper consistency.
  • Instead of desiccated coconut, you can use crushed nuts to roll ladoos or to coat ladoos.
  • You may add mawa/khoya instead of almond flour or meal.
