coconut ladoo ganesh chaturthi recipe

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 ladoos 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 ladoos would become hard.

also you have to be quick enough to make the ladoos when the mixture is still hot. if the mixture cools, forming the coconut ladoos 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 ladoos to be offered as naivedyam or bhog to lord ganesha. ladoos are the favoriate food of lord ganesha. apart from these ladoos, you can also offer motichoor ladoo, rava ladoo and boondi ladoo also to lord ganesha.

    • aathira, looks like the sugar syrup was overcooked. thats why the dryness. add some warm milk and melted ghee and roll again.

  9. Hi dassana
    I used the same measurements and also got the thread consistency but still the coconut is falling apart and cannot make balls out of it. What went wrong? Can i mix some more sugar syrup?

    • kavitha, just cook it for some more minutes till you get the smooth round ball from the coconut.
