nariyal ladoo, coconut ladoo

nariyal ke ladoo are specially made during festivals like diwali, ganesh chaturthi, dussehra.. these nariyal ladoo are made with desiccated coconut. i have also posted the recipe of coconut burfi and coconut ladoo made with desiccated coconut powder.

if you have fresh coconut, then you can check these sweets recipes made with fresh coconut:

these nariyal ladoo are easy to make provided you get 1 thread or ek taar consistency in the sugar syrup. if you overcook the sugar syrup beyond the 1 thread consistency, the coconut ladoo would become hard.

also you have to be quick enough to make the ladoo when the mixture is still hot. if the mixture cools, forming the coconut ladoo is an impossible task. then you warm the mixture and start making the ladoos again.

do try this nariyal ladoo recipe for ganesh chaturthi or for diwali or any festival. i made these delicious ladoo to be offered as naivedyam or bhog to lord ganesha. ladoo are the favoriate food of lord ganesha. apart from these ladoo, you can also offer motichoor ladoo, rava ladoo and boondi ladoo also to lord ganesha.

  7. Hi… I m going to try this ladoo tonight… Have also tried a few other recipes of yours.. Too good I say 🙂
    Time saver n yummy too 🙂

  8. Would like to bring your attention that the above recipe has been used in the website of ganeshchathurthi.org. Have they taken your permission to do the same.and also they have not given the credits to you.

  9. Hi Dassana
    I live in a remote part of the US and around here it’s really hard to get unsweetened coconut so all I could lay my hands on is sweetened coconut from Walmart….can I make these laddoos with that if I omit or reduce the sugar syrup from your recipe?

    • yes you can use sweetened coconut. you will have to reduce the sugar then as well as the water proportion. you can use 1/2 cup sugar and about 1/4 or 1/3 cup water.

  10. Can these ladoos be stored outside or do u have to keep them refrigerated? How long do they last?

    • at my place they got over soon. better keep in the refrigerator. not sure, but i think they will last for about 3-4 days in the refrigerator.

  11. hi dasana.need some help from u..Here in mauritius, we do milk laddoo without coconut for ganesh chaturthi..i know we use milk, sugar and almonds…please can u help me for this recipe and instructions.thanks.If possible, please reply before tuesday.thanks.

    • gavnisha, i know the recipe with condensed milk. but its been years since i have made it. so i don’t want to give you rough approximation of the ingredients. because when we cook then we come to know how the consistency turns up.

  12. Hi again, ur coconut is dried one. Is it possible to make with fresh grated one I do not get desiccated coconut mixture here at my place.
    TC,XO

    • simren, i don’t think that this recipe will work for fresh coconut as it has lot of moisture. you can try by dry roasting the fresh coconut in a pan and then use it. but don’t let the coconut brown. best is to use the desiccated coconut.
