Narkel Naru (Coconut Ladoos) is a popular traditional Bengali Sweet. It is made of Coconut, milk and sugar or jaggery. This Coconut Ladoos are one of the important Neivedhyam dish for the Bengalis during Durga Pooja. Conventionally this sweet is made of whole fat milk, coconut and sugar or jaggery. But nowadays we all look for instant sweets instead of spending so much of time to make a sweet dish. So instead of using milk, I have used condensed milk. Using condensed milk is a quick way to make this dish. Condensed milk help us to prepare this dish just in 10 minutes. Very quick and yummy dish. My MIL's younger sister is in Kolkata and she shared this recipe with me. Lets see how to make this yummy dish!!!

Method:

  1. Heat a pan, add condensed milk along with cardamom powder. I have used dessicated coconut. So we can use it as it is. But if you are planning to use fresh coconut, then saute the fresh coconut in low flame in a pan for 4 to 5 minutes so that its moisture gets evaporated. If you are using dessicated coconut, we don't need to roast the coconut. Add the 400gms of roasted fresh coconut or dessicated coconut to the condensed milk in the pan

  2. In a low flame, mix everything well. Stir continuously in low flame till the whole mixture gets combined well and rolls like a ball without sticking to the sides of the pan. Switch off the flame

  3. Allow the whole mixture to cool off. Then grease your hands with ghee and make small lemon sized balls out of the mixture. Take the remaining 2 tablespoon of coconut in a plate. Coat the rolled coconut ladoos in this coconut nicely and keep it aside. 

  4. Repeat the step for the rest of the coconut ladoos. Thats it! Our coconut ladoos are now ready!!

  5. Serve the yummy Coconut Ladoos / Narkel Naru or keep it for neivedhyam!!!
