Reading Time: 4 minutes
Dates Ladoo, a very healthy dry fruits and nuts ladoo. Sometimes many of our kids, even the grown ups, show no interest to nuts and dry fruits which are very healthy for us. Consuming dry fruits especially dates, raisins are very good for blood circulation and has other medical benefits too. Also nuts such as almonds, walnuts are also good for health.Here I have given a very simple and healthy ladoo recipe with dates and other nuts and raisins. We are not going to add any sweetener and also not going to add more ghee/butter to prepare this yummy ladoo and hence making it a healthier recipe.
How to get perfect Dates Ladoo?
- Pitted dates is quicker option. If your dates has seeds, de-seed it and use it. We sauté the dates till soft and grind it to coarse paste. We can chop one portion of dates and grind the rest so that the paste will be coarse.
- Coarse Nut Powder gives a nice texture to the dates ladoo. Warm up the nuts in microwave for 30 seconds or over the pan for few minutes and then pulse it coarsely.
- Ghee is used for binding. Unlike other ladoo varieties, we just use very little ghee to shape the dates and nuts mixture into ladoos
