Coconut Rose Ladoo

Coconut Rose Ladoo 

With September around the corner, we all are excited for the upcoming festivals of Ganesh Chaturti, Diwali and Navratri. Hoping that the colours and positive spirit of this time would help with the overwhelming year that 2020 has been. The preparations however come with some drawbacks, including the fear of buying sweets from stores and being exposed to the pandemic. I was quite skeptical and reluctant about compromising the safety of my family but I also didn't want to lose out on the grandeur that festivals usually bring. So, I used this recipe that isn't a task to make and also manages to bring out the elegance and positivity of festivals.

For me, the best part about this recipe was its lack of complexity. It gave an opportunity to my family to bond over while cooking this and not worrying about the outcome. Its taste and look captures the elegance, while its preparation brought out the essence and spirit of festivals. I hope it does the same for you and makes you feel more at home than usual.
