Celebrate the festive season with Nariyal Laddu

It's just the beginning of festive season for we Indians ..... Festivals are always associated with family get together, good food, new clothes, exchange of gifts, warm feelings .... it's just an never ending list of good things.

How much I miss all the fun and frolic in this far far land. But I have to stop complaining ..... especially with such nice friends around. They are family now....

Yesterday I was at Shruti's place. Like always I was shameless to explore her kitchen. Voila .... Nariyal Laddu !! She has a huge sweet tooth and is known for her sweet dishes ..... especially Nariyal ka laddu. Well I had hogged on Shruti's laddu's on several occasions .....but never ever did I care to get the recipe from her. Every time I would catch up with her I would praise her for the perfect laddus she makes and make a plea to make some for me.

Guess it was high time to put a full stop to my tantrums of asking her to prepare them for me. She passed me the recipe .....well I am happy and not so happy about it !! Happy because I can share the wonderful recipe with all of you ...... and not so happy because I may have to stop asking her to prepare laddus for me (now that I got the recipe I have to prepare it myself, no more excuses !!).

Thanks Shruti for the lovely Nariyal Laddu's. I would love to share her recipe with all of you ....... as this is just the beginning of good times !!
