Typing this recipe after a reasonable gap! Days and nights are flying just like that with my lil Angel. Squeezed a few minutes and spending it in my blog! :)
Coming to today's recipe, this is a very healthy, nutritious and delicious laddoo. This is generally given to nursing mothers, and of course any one can enjoy this delicious sweet which keeps the body warm. If you are taking more laddu's its advisable to have them with a glass of milk.
I Have heard of these edible gum laddoo's recently but I haven't even seen the gum! One of my North Indian friend made the laddoo's for the first time and I tried my hands on this time. Browsed the internet and tweaked little bit according to my convenience, finding some shortcuts! Hope this recipe will be useful to the readers, especially the new mom's.
Dry Fruits&nuts-3/4 cup to 1 cup [ Dates, raisins, walnuts, almonds]
Heat a tablespoon of ghee and fry the gum, keep it aside.
Chop the dates and keep it ready.
Fry the dry fruits and nuts[I didn't fry the dates] and let them cool down.
Take the fried gum, dry fruits and nuts in a blender and grind them coarsely.
Take the roasted flour in a microwave safe dish, mix the sugar.
Add the remaining ghee, mix it.
Add the chopped nuts, give it a quick mix.
Again microwave the laddoo mixture for a couple of minutes, give 2 minutes standing time and let the mixture cool down a bit and make laddoos.
Tasty and healthy laddoos are ready. They keep well at room temperature for a week or 10 days, I bet they will be over before that! :)
