Kuber once invited Lord Shiva to his golden palace. Lord Shiva realized that Kuber had invited him to show off his wealth and sent his son Ganesha instead. After welcoming Ganesha, while Kuber tried to show him his precious belongings, he became more interested in food. Kuber boasted of having so much food that he could feed thousands of guests. Meanwhile, Ganesha started eating and cleaned almost all the cooked food before he started eating all the raw food in the kitchen, but he did not feel full. When there was nothing left to eat, Lord Ganesha started eating gold utensils in the kitchen and it was then that Kuber realized that he would consume all his wealth. A frantic Kuber then approached Lord Shiva who asked him to serve Ganesha a homemade laddoo by Maa Paravati. The trick worked and Lord Ganesha was finally satisfied.

On the occasion of Ganesh Chaturthi, here are 3 laddoo recipes you can make to celebrate the birth of Lord Ganesha.

1. CHOCOLATE COCONUT LADDOO

(Recipe by Anantikaa R Vig, founder of Freshly Baked By Anantikaa)

Ingredients

* Condensed milk

* Desiccated Coconut

* Dark or milk chocolate

METHOD

– In a non-stick pan, take the condensed milk. Turn on the gas and slowly heat the condensed milk.

– Now add the grated coconut. Now you need to mix the two ingredients and cook over low heat for about 2 minutes.

– Be sure to let the mixture cool for about 5 minutes. The mixture should start to leave the sides.

– Once the mixture gets a little warm, start rolling balls out of the mixture and set aside. If the mixture sticks to your hand, grease your hands with oil or clarified butter (ghee).

– Using the double boil method, melt the chocolate. Heat some water in a saucepan and place a bowl filled with chocolates on it. You will notice that the chocolate will slowly begin to melt. Do not keep them directly on the gas or overheat. You can also put in the microwave for 30 seconds until the chocolate is melted.

– When the chocolate is half melted, turn off the gas. Keep stirring and the rest of the chocolate should be melted.

– Once the chocolate is completely melted, remove the bowl from the water.

– Slowly put the coconut balls in the melted dark chocolate mixture and coat them with chocolate. Place it on a plate.

– Sprinkle a little grated coconut on the chocolate so that it sticks well to the balls. Now place the balls in the refrigerator for about 10 minutes until they are completely set.
