Coconut Laddu / Nariyal ke Laddu/ નારીયેલ ના લાડુ

Coconut Laddu is one of the popular sweet in India, specially made during festivals such as Navratri, Shravan Maas, is one of the most relished sweet during fast or vrat. Nariyal laddu is very easy and simple sweet and very quick to make... no hassle of making syrup, can be made within 30 mins. I learnt this from my mom, she used to make this during vrats and specially on the first day of navratri. This recipe is very close to heart as this was the first sweet dish which i prepared without her help when i was only 12 yrs old. This post is in memory of my mom and to my lovely sisters who loves this sweet.

Hope you will enjoy and make this during navratri. Wishing my all dear friends and readers a Happy Navratri.
