Traditional Festival Sweet

Coconut ladoo is an Indian dessert which is traditionally prepared during festivals like Diwali. The version we are preparing today is rose-flavored by adding either rose syrup or rooh afza syrup. The ladoos are quick to make and very yummy. Try them and share your experience in the comments section below.

Usually, they are prepared without flavouring, Peggy, but rose flavouring takes it to a different level altogether. Thanks for visiting.

Looks delicious. I do make coconut Laddoos, but haven’t tried with the flavour of rooh afza.

Thanks for sharing this idea and other details.

Fawzan Studio on June 09, 2020:

Wow , I saw Ladoos in Hindi movies during wedding and I guess it is so sweet . I hope one day I will have that luck to taste it Rajan Bhai.

These sound flavorful and easy to make. My husband is not a fan of coconut, but I enjoy it. It is a colorful dessert treat, as well.

I found the rose syrup on Amazon and am tempted to try this!

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on June 08, 2020:

Rose-flavored? I don't think I've ever tasted anything rose-flavored. Interesting! I would try this for sure, just for the taste experience.
