Healthy Diet: Try these 5 ladoo recipes that are nutritious and free of refined sugar
We all like gorging on something sweet every once in a while. As Indians, we are especially fond of eating ‘something sweet’ after our meals, which is probably why we have such a rich repertoire of desserts and sugary delights in our culinary treasure chest. From halwas to ladoos, to burfis, to delightful puddings, and to sweet flatbreads, the intense Indian sweet tooth has a delightful range of desserts to indulge in. Ladoos are one of our very own inventions. These sweet balls made of various flours and spices are rolled with hands and held together with copious amounts of ghee. You can make ladoos out of anything and everything you wish to. Ladoos can be made from food grains and cereals, may contain milk and nuts, flavourful spices and even fruits and cooked vegetables.
Due to their compact structure, ladoos are convenient too. They are easy to carry and are hence, often offered to friends and relatives on special occasions. It’s also customary to carry boxes of ladoos while visiting friends or family. Ladoos also have an endless potential to be used as healthy snacks, simply because they’re easy to pack with lunchboxes and in tiffins. If you’re looking to turn your favourite desi sweet ladoo into a healthful morning or evening snack, then we have a few recipe ideas for you.
