Coconut Ladoo Recipe

Coconut or Nariyal Ladoo Recipe

Dear Readers,

Today the recipe that I am going to share is not mine but my Mom's recipe. Though she is more famous for her soft and stuffy paranthas in my family but this time she tried something new, the Coconut ladoo.

Since we moved to Bangalore, my mom has made few friends who are south Indians and she has been learning few things. And coconut is available in abundance here. My kids love sweets and she made is especially for them.

I used to think making desserts or sweets is really difficult and complex but more I have seen my wife make those wonderful desserts like Bread and Egg Pudding, Tutti Fruity Cake and Mocha Mousse, I now know how easy are these. Do check out these recipes too by clicking on the name.

So this is how the amazingly tasty coconut ladoos look like.

Uttapam on Bread

Uttapam or Uttapam Recipe

Bhavna again this side. Well, I am sure you must be getting all the non-veg recipes from Raj but It is me who gets in kitchen to cook something new and different with veggies.

Today is a simple Uttapam Recipe but with a twist and presented in a wonderful way which will make your kids and guests eat this famous south Indian dish with much desire.

Look at this pic and see how a boring dish (as per my Raj) can be turned into a super rockstar (as per Raj again).

Raj was home little late and as usual said that he is hungry. So he wanted something to eat with tea. Now, there are times like these when I start thinking on making something nice for him. And then came the idea of making Uttapam on Bread.
