Special Naru / Special Coconut laddoo


Forgive me for not being regular last few days. I am visiting Bangladesh after 5 years. So I deserve this break. I am giving Special Naru / Special Coconut laddoo. It is Naru stuffed kheer ball inside. You can omit the kheer ball part. Then it will be plain sugar naru. Even you can big naru and put 2-3 kheer balls inside.


• 1 cup grated coconut

• ¾ cup sugar

• ¼ cup kheer/ rabri

• 1 teaspoon semolina

• ¼ teaspoon cardamom powder

• 1 tablespoon clarified butter/ghee

How to make:

1. Fry semolina in ½ teaspoon clarified butter/ ghee and mix with kheer / rabri.

2. Make small balls with it and fry it with clarified butter/ ghee till it becomes golden brown.

3. Heat the pan on medium high and add grated coconut, cardamom and sugar.

4. Cook it till oil comes out.( need to stir constantly)

5. Remove from heat and let it cool down slightly.

6. Stuff the kheer ball in coconut dough and make smooth ball by rolling between palms. (check the photo)

Tips: 1. Store in an air tight container or refrigerate it. 2.For making kheer boil 1/2 liter milk with 1 and 1/2 teaspoon rice flour together till it becomes pliable(don’t forget to stir continuously).

  2. Hello Rownak!
    I like your website, your recipes and I love Bengali language, Bangladesh, its people and everything about Bangladesh. I am nostalgic about Bangladesh, my land of birth ( AAMAR JONMO BHOOMI ).I specially like the Bengali sweets which are a real delicacy of Bangladesh.

    • yeah I agree with you that Bangladeshi sweets are real delicacy. I have sweet tooth so I just love to make and enjoy those. Which part of Bangladesh are you from?

  3. As you are on a visit to Bangladesh these days so convey my salam to my JONMO BHOOMI.

  4. Thank you very much for your reply. I am a bit late in responding as one of my sisters was on a visit from USA and was staying at my house. She has just left on Friday which was Eid day here in Karachi. My parents had migrated from India to Bangladesh where I was born and we lived at various places of Bangladesh as my father was in a transferable job. I therefore claim that I belong to every part of Bangladesh. The last six years of my stay in Bangladesh was in Dhaka.
