Coconut ladoo is one of the famous traditional sweet in India. It is very tasty and sweet recipe. We can use this sweet for special North Indians festivals and celebrations such as Diwali and holiday Also we can use this as our evening snacks. Coconut Ladoo is made by fresh coconut so it is good to our health an also it will have the nice smell of pure coconut. Completely it is natural sweets.
I have used Jaggery to get sweet to this recipe. We can prepare this recipe with sugar also but I think jaggery is better than sugar. So this sweet will be chemical free. I have used homemade condensed milk in this recipe so that the main flavour will be the combination of fresh coconut and condensed milk. I used peanuts so we will get peanut taste and crispness when we have it. It is having the mixed smell and taste of coconut,milk and cardamom powder. Coconut ladoo is becoming popular day by day and it is available in so many shops in Kerala. I think that almost everyone has tasted it at least once otherwise we can taste it through this recipe. This is very simple method of preparation and it can make with limited ingredients. Everyone will like this sweet especially children. This is very simple and cost effective recipe. Let us enjoy with this sweet snack in the evening.
