Subho Lakshmi Pujo — Narkol Naru —

Kojagari Lakshmi Puja is dedicated to Goddess Lakshmi — goddess of wealth and prosperity and is observed mainly in Bengal , Orissa and Assam.

Thought of making some narkol naru ( coconut ladoo) in this auspicious occasion.

This is a special full moon day –and generally women observe fast whole day and offer special dishes with utmost care and purity to the Goddess Lakshmi in the evening .

Kojagari Literally means awakening of light —


Main Ingredients:

  • 2 coconut (korano or grated or scraped)
  • 2 cups of sugar
  • 100 gm of Amul Milk powder
  • 1 tsp of cardamom powder


Scrape and grate the coconut, I have used blender  here.

Heat a deep bottomed non-stick pan, and transfer the korano coconut, milk powder and the sugar and stir.

Continue to stir till the mixture becomes sticky, and you can make a ball from the mixture.

Now turn off the oven and transfer the mixture to a flat surface.

Start making round shaped balls and it has to be done while the  mixture is hot .

The trick here is that you can keep a bowl of normal water in a bowl and use it to wet your hand while making the balls — it will ensure that your hands don’t get burned.

Keep it in a dry place.
