Coconut Ladoo | Special Recipes To Celebrate Vishu and Tamil New Year

               We are happy to celebrate and wish you all  tamil new year as well as Vishu. 
The Tamil New Year, Varsha Pirappu or Puthandu, is observed on the first day of Tamil month Chithirai, the first month as per traditional Tamil Calendar.
Vishu is a popular as well as prime festival in the state of Kerala where it is celebrated as the auspicious occasion of New Year. It is also considered as a festival of Feast(sadhya) to celebrate.
We have compiled here few of the recipes that are usually prepared on this special occasion along with an easy recipe COCONUT LADOO. 

Recipes To try For Tamil / Vishu New Year:

Coconut Ladoo

Ladoo made with freshly scrapped coconut and milk.

Preparation & Cooking Time : 30 Minutes

YIELD : 8 Ladoos


Coconut - 1 cup, freshly scrapped(without skin)
Sugar - 1/2 cup
Almonds - 2 tbsp, blanched and chopped
Ghee - 2 tbsp
Milk- 1/3 Cup, warm


  1. Place a non stick fry pan on stove. Heat the pan with ghee added. 
  2. Once the ghee melts add coconut, sugar and milk. Stir constantly, till the moisture gets evaporated and tends to forms a big lump. This will take around 12 - 15 minutes. Switch off the fire.
  3. Mix some blanched almonds, cool for a while and start making small lemon sized balls. Serve it. 


  • As I used milk, consumes within 3-4 days, keep refrigerate after a day.
  • If  you like to add more nuts like cashews, pista, raisins; roast everything in ghee and mix with coconut mixture.
