1 Mango slice
Fresh grated Coconut meat ½ cups
Yogurt 1 cup
2 tbs of sugar

Coconut Ladoo

Fresh coconut meat grated 2 cups
½ cup of sugar
3 tbs of Besan or chick pea flour
2 tbs of milk
4-5 tbs of ghee

Heat up ghee , now add coconut and sugar and cook at low for 10 -15 mints stiring continuously .Make sure the Batter doesn’t stick to base .
When it starts to collect and comes out smoothly from the side of Kadai , this is ready .
Now add milk and besan and mix well , add this mixture to the coconut and cook at low for 5 mints till the milk mixture gets dried .
Take out in a separate plate and quickly start to roll them into small balls like ladoo .Coconut Laddo is ready .
This is very similar to Narkoler Naru except that Narkoler Naro is made with Gur and coconut only .
These are going to Suganya at Tasty Palettes , visit here for more details AFAM-JUNE.
