Vegan Pineapple Laddus are bite-sized sweet balls of aromatic and delicious goodness. It’s an Indian sweet that requires only 5 ingredients.



  • 1 cup finely chopped pineapple
  • 1 cup desiccated coconut
  • ½ cup sugar or jaggery powder
  • 1 tsp cardamom powder
  • ¼ cup finely chopped cashew nuts


  1. Chop pineapple into very fine slices. You can also blend to make a chunky paste but make sure the paste is not smooth.
  2. Once chopped, add it to a pan on medium-low heat and start to cook it down for a good 15-20 minutes. Then add sugar and make sure you keep stirring for another 10 minutes to avoid sticking on the bottom of the pan. Let all moisture from the pineapples to evaporate.
  3. Then, add desiccated coconut and cardamom powder to the pan and start mixing. Cook for 2 minutes.
  4. Add finely chopped cashew nuts and cook the mixture on low heat for 5 minutes. Once done, take it off the heat and let it cool.
  5. Using your palms, make rounds balls or laddus in the size of your liking.
