Narkel Naru (Coconut Laddoos)
- Duration: 30 minutes
- Serves: 4–6 people
The longer you cook the nary the harder it becomes. So if you like it soft laddoos, adjust the cooking time accordingly. The mix becomes solid once it cools, so keep mind that whatever stage you stop cooking, the naru will be harder than that.

Narkel naru or coconut laddoos are must for Durga Puja. Made of coconut, milk and jaggery, these laddoos are an important prasad served to visitors at every home and also at the puja pandals.
- Milk, full fat (4 cup)
- Fresh coconut, grated (2 cup)
- Jaggery (1 cup)
- Green cardamom powder (elaichi) (1 tsp)
- Break the jaggery into small pieces.
- Heat water in a kadhai and add the jaggery to it. Slowly stir on medium heat till the pieces dissolve. Bring it to a slow boil and switch off the flame.
- Add elaichi powder and the grated coconut. Toss and stir to mix.
- Turn on the flame and cook on low heat, stirring occasionally to prevent the mixture from sticking to the bottom of the pan.
- Keep cooking till the mix is sticky. It will take around 20 minutes.
- When the coconut coating is solid enough to shake off your stirring spoon, the mixture is done.
- Remove immediately from heat and spread it onto a plate.
- Scoop out a handful of coconut mix while it is warm, and roll it into a ball.
- Offer as prasad and store the rest in an airtight jar.
