If sweets like Coconut Ladoo are ready well in advance, than on the day of festival you just have to open the container and serve it. This Coconut Laddoo recipe is the simplest recipe of any sweet I have ever tried, no tricky instructions, just mix and bind the laddoos. I made these ladoos
Coconut Ladoos are a great sweet for prasad during the festivals like for Ganesh Chaturthi and Navratri. Nothing can beat a platter of delicious homemade sweets that you share with your loved ones and watch them devour these Ladoos in no time. Though this recipe is quite a simple one with only 3 ingredients but still be very specific with the measurements of the ingredients otherwise laddoos will turn out sticky and chewy. Before start preparing the Coconut Ladoos make sure everything is at room temperature, if not then bring out of fridge at least 30 minutes before making laddoos especially condensed milk. Freshly grated coconut can also be used for this recipe though I have used the readymade unsweetened packaged one.
