Dry Fruit Laddoo


Dry fruits are rich source of vitamins, minerals and fiber. Lets keep the cholesterol and fat part aside sometimes… what say?
I make these laddoo to give my little girl all the essential and natural vitamins every month or once one batch is empty. She enjoys it just like a toffee and so do we J. I make a small batch of around 25 laddoos at a time so that they stay fresh. Its guilt free as you don’t have sugar included in it.
Adding dates(rich in iron) to these also makes it taste yummy… but till now as it was summer I avoided dates in these.





We need:

Anjeer/ Dried Fig – 3/4th cup
Badam Chopped – 1/4th cup
Pista Chopped – 1/4th cup
Cashew Pieces – 1/4th cup
Walnut pieces – 2-3 tbsp

1 tsp+ 1/2 tsp ghee (optional)


Method :
1.       Chop Anjeer into small pcs and blend it in a mixer coarsely.
2.       Take a pan with 1 tsp of ghee and roast all the dry fruits in it.
3.       Take another pan with ½ tsp of ghee and add anjeer mixture and heat for 3 mins on a medium flame with a spatula till the moisture is gone.
4.       Once the moisture is gone, then add roasted dry fruits and mix well for 2 mins.
5.       Now close the flame and let it cool for 3-4 mins.
6.       Put little bit of ghee in both hands to make small balls of this mixture.
Now stack them in a air tight box and ENJOY J.



Add lotzza Love in it and make the dish Healthy,
As its Navratri now you can make this for Prasad too!
Note:
You can skip ghee while roasting the nuts and dry roast it, but you need little ghee to grease you hands.
Add lotzza Love in it and make the dish Healthy,
