  1. Nariyalladoo can also be prepared with milkmaid, koya and even with simple sugar syrup.
  2. Have desiccated coconut to prepare this ladoo, however fresh grated coconut can also be used. If fresh coconut is used, make sure to dry roast them before adding milk.
  3. Prepare the ladoos in low flame as the milk and coconut might burn on high flame.
