Coconut Ladoos

Bhog for Ganpatiji is always a confusing thing for me as I dont make Indian sweets much. I keep Ganpati and fot those 5 days I keep thinking what to make. I saw this post by a virtual friend Tanvee Sharda and the Nariyal Chamchams she had made looked absolutely delicious. I made it a point to save the recipe.

Now this is not the first recipe I have saved or attempted but this is the first recipe that was a super hit. And its without condensed milk too. I made it for bhog and they were polished off. So made it again yesterday when I went to a visit a friends Ganpati. I love coconut sweets so u can imagine the amount I must have made, greedy me. I saved up some for the shoot after hiding it from my family. And now it’s in the open, doubt any would be left for tomorrow.
