Nariyal Ke Ladoo ( Coconut Ladoos)

Narial ke ladoo is the easiest home made dessert. It is actually a very less known fact that the fat from coconut is totally absorbed by our body and thus giving coconut to young children specifically fussy young kids can be beneficial. However making your kids eat coconut can be troublesome as it is quite hard for them to chew. If you can make coconut ladoos, your children will be able to have them quite easily and will ask for more.
