These are melt in the mouth delicious coconut laddoos are made with freshly grated coconut, milk & sugar. This three-ingredient traditional recipe is made as an offering to Lord Ganesha or any other diety for religious occasions.

These nariyal laddoos are super easy to make and you can customize the flavor of the coconut laddoo with cardamom powder or saffron or skip them altogether.

Makes 14 medium-sized laddoos

3 cups freshly grated coconut,
2 tsp ghee,
1-1/2 cup milk,
1 cup sugar,
1/4th cup milk powder, (optional)


  1. Measure out all the ingredients and set it aside.
  2. Heat a heavy bottom pan and add the ghee.
  3. Add the fresh coconut and saute it on low flame for 3-4 mins.
  4. Now add the milk and keep stirring until all the moisture of the milk is evaporated. This might take about 7-8 mins on low flame.
  5. Next, add the sugar and mix well.
  6. Keep stirring continuously for another 6-7 mins until the sugar is melted and the mixture starts to come together.
  7. Add the milk powder (if using, I have not used) at this stage and mix well. You will see the mixture now resembles like crumbles.
  8. Remove the mixture on to a plate and spread it out evenly to cool down. 
  9. Once it’s cooled down enough that you can touch it, start making laddoos by pressing them between your palms.
  10. Store them in an airtight container.


  • Ensure the flame is on low at all times so that the white color of the coconut is retained.
  • If after adding the sugar the mixture seems too runny, don’t worry. Just cook some more coconut in milk like step 2, 3 & 4 and add it to the original mixture.
  • You can replace the fresh coconut with desiccated coconut also.
