Narkel naru (coconut laddu) recipe.
Two main ingredients and less than 30 minutes are all you need to make these delicious bites of goodness. Fresh coconut and jaggery are the main ingredients here. In Bengal during winter, a special variety of jaggery is available called ‘khejur gur’ (date palm jaggery). When this is in the market, most of the sweets, including naru are made with it and they taste simply wonderful. This particular variety of jaggery, however, is not available every time and everywhere. So I usually make the laddoos using the regular jaggery or gur. Make these yummy little bites for a quick snack or sweet craving – tastes absolutely wonderful.
To make this delicious narkel naru (coconut laddu), I boil jaggery and water together taking care it doesn't get too sticky. I then add grated coconut and simmer it so that the moisture dries out. Once the mixture comes together, they are ready to be shaped into small balls. I make the balls while the coconut mixture is still hot. The best way is to wet hands with cold water. It gets a lot easier to handle it then. Try this easy recipe and enjoy these delicious bites of goodness.
