Hello friends!

Nariyal Ladoo, this Indian coconut sweet dish is high in calories but that doesn’t mean we can not indulge occasionally, eating in moderation is the key!

This is a easy recipe that requires only 4 ingredients. I have given this recipe a little twist. Conventionally the nariyal ladoos are coated with coconut powder but i am using almond powder instead!
