Delicious rose coconut ladoos are ready to be served.



You can use any rose syrup of your choice.  I used rooh afza syrup.

You can used clarified butter instead of ghee.

You can skip rose syrup if you do not have one and make plain coconut ladoos.

Ladoos stay good for a day or two at room temperature.  You can then store in a refrigerator in an airtight container.
