this method of making dry fruits and nuts ladoos were shared by my mom. she had seen this on a tv show. she only saw the way these ladoos are made and told me the method. She told that Khus Khus is also one ingredients which gives crunchy taste to the ladoo and i reserved some which i bought it from India and used it.Also the interesting part is that ghee less or sugar less ladoo, weight watcher this should be a best option of having sweets.Date ladoos are also vegan and gluten free. It’s hard to eat just one!
For vegan,this would be the best options of making indian sweets as far as ingredients are concerned. For lactating mom and pregnant ladies pls note that this ladoo is very healthy and also very easy to make. Do make and store in air tight container when ever feel hungry have it.
I have used decicated coconut, khus khus, dry fruits and nuts . I didn’t use any edible gum to make this ladoo since dates itself gives nice binding to make ladoo so i avoid using edible gum. Below is the Dry fruits and nuts list,
These are the list of dry fruits and nuts that i have used to make dry fruits ladoo if you want you can add more nuts and dry fruits variety of your choice.
