Nariyal Ladoo – Nariyal Ladoo recipe that I am sharing with you today is really easy to make. There are just three ingredients involved. The nariyal ladoos that we get are so juicy, yummy and soft that they simply melt in your mouth.
I met a friend of mine, Veenu, around Diwali time on my grocery store and I was buying Nariyal Burada for making Gunjiya. She said that we make this Nariyal ladoo in the ratio 4:3:1 and they are quite popular with their guests. And she insisted that they are REALLY good and I must give them a try.
Since then I have made these around 5-6 times and the results have been great all the time.
The ratio 4:3:1 is of milk: nariyal Burada (desiccated coconut powder): sugar. I just reserve some nariyal Burada for rolling the ladoos in.
I have been so busy with my elder son’s exams that I did not get time to post anything for so long. I made these last month and they have been lying in my draft for the last 20 days. I was also not very satisfied with the photographs as the weather was really bad that day. But the recipe is so good that I could not stop myself from sharing it.
A perfect sweet to make this Holi.
How to make Nariyal Ladoo
Cooking time: 30 minutes
Making balls of ladoo: 5 minutes
Makes around 30 Ladoos though it may depend on the size you choose
Note: you can halve or double the recipe as per your wish just keep the ratio same.
4 cups milk
3 cups nariyal Burada/desiccated coconut powder
1 cup sugar
you can add nuts or elaichi powder. I don’t as my family loves them as it is.
To make Nariyal Ladoo
Remove 3 tbsp coconut powder from the 3 cups for rolling the ladoo.
Mix rest of the Burada/nariyal powder, sugar, and milk in a wide nonstick pan and keep on high flame stirring in between. After 4-5 minutes reduce the flame to low and let it cook for around 25- 30 minutes on low flame.
The mixture should become thick and milk should not be visible at all.
Let it cool for some time and make ladoos when the mixture is cool enough to handle.
Roll them in the desiccated coconut. I got around 30 Ladoos.
Keep the Ladoos in the fridge.
