Pears Coconut Ladoo
There are so many reasons to love the green pear. Pears are packed with health benefits - they are an excellent source of dietary fiber and Vitamin C in particular, and at the same time low on calories. Although the season for pears runs from August through October, there is a variety of pear available year-round because of the seasonal variations amongst the different varieties .And  Coconuts are one of the most nutritious of all fruits. It is easy to make and less expensive as it does not require much of ghee. yesterday my daughter brought some pears it was too hard and bit sour instead of wasting it I decided to make it sweet.  I have prepared this sweet before once..
