These can be made during the festivals like Ganesh Chaturthi, Diwali, Raksha bandhan, Holi and so on. During the festivals we have lot of work like cleaning, decorating house and preparing other things. So in the short of time, this ladoo recipe comes handy. It is very quick and easy to make with few ingredients.

In this ladoo, I have added tutti frutti which make it very beautiful looking and it goes perfect with coconut flavor. Kids always love colorful food. Alternately you can add nuts (almonds, cashews) or raisins.

‘Boora’ or ‘Tagar’ is used for making this ladoo. It is easily available in India. Here I have used Powdered sugar instead which works perfectly fine as well. But I do not recommend adding regular white granulated sugar.

There are many different ways of making coconut ladoo. So far I know four methods:

  • Coconut ladoo made with KhoyaToday I shared this recipe. does not need expertise, beginners can make it very easily.
  • made with sugar syrup: For this type, sugar syrup is made till you get one string consistency meaning ‘ek taar chasni’. This requires expertise and little difficult for new bees, but still not that hard if you have proper instructions.
  • made with condensed milk – this one is also very quick to make just like today’s recipe. I will be sharing this soon.
  • no cook version – made with dry coconut and condensed milk only.

I am sharing the this recipe for Ganesh Chaturthi Festival as ladoos are Lord Ganesha’s most favorite food apart from the Modak.
