When the festival season arrives, it is time to brush up our laddoo making skills and to expand our choice of laddoos because from Ganpati to Diwali, laddoo is a favourite offering to God.

And laddoos like this Coconut Laddoo are also easy to make. Immensely rich and tasty, this Coconut Laddoo has a luxuriant milky flavour and an exciting mouth-feel that combines the crunch of coconuts and nuts with the creaminess of condensed milk.

Keep aside some desiccated coconut to coat the laddoos, as that gives a very appetizing appearance and taste.

Also do try other coconut based mithais like Coconut Barfi or Coconut Sheera .
