Narkel Narus/Bengali Coconut Laddoos

My two previous posts are with coconut as main ingredient, you guys might have noticed that. As my theme for this week's blogging marathon is 'chose an ingredient and cook from 3 different cookbooks' i chosed coconut as main ingredient. For my today's post, am here with a very addictive coconut laddoos from Bengali cuisine, i chosed these cute laddoos from Malini Basu's Miss Masala cookbook.Traditionally this laddoos are prepared with jaggery and whole milk. Thank god i recently picked a packet of jaggery from Indian grocery, thats why i chosed to prepare this coconut laddoos for my third day of blogging marathon.

This coconut laddoos gets ready really very quick, quite an easy breezy sweet. Malini used dark muscovado sugar and condensed milk, but i prepared mine with jaggery and unsweetened condensed milk. Unsweetened condensed milk aka evaporated milk and jaggery together works prefectly, this laddoos are one of the very easy sweet i have tried till now.If you need something quick as a sweet for a pooja or to serve your sudden guest, you must definitely give a try to this fabulous cuties.Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#26.Sending to 27 coupons & Swathi's Traditional Indian Sweets.


2cups Fresh grated coconut
1cup Evaporated milk
1/2cup Jaggery

Take the coconut,milk and jaggery in a heavy bottomed vessel,cook everything in medium flame for 10minutes and cook in simmer until they liquid evaporates and you get a sticky,thick mixture.

Form little balls out of the slightly warm mixture with ur hand.

Place on a plate and chill it in fridge for a atleast two hours.

Beware these laddoos are quite addictive.
