Now a days me and my daughters have started running in the morning. After that they have to go to school so, they have no time for breakfast.I am very much worried about it. So I decided to make these energy laddoos- easy to make and easy to eat.

Dates and dry fruits both provide warmth to the body and hence these Dates and Nuts ladoos serve as a delicious,  healthy and nutritious winter breakfast with energy punch to start the day.

The dates and nuts ladoo recipe makes use of fresh dates,figs, Poppy seeds and nuts like Cashew Nuts, Almonds,raisins, Walnuts and Pistachios. Dates serve as natural sweetener and hence no additional sugar is added to this Ladoos. Recipe is very quick and easy to follow.

Pistachio – 1 tbsp chopped
Almonds – 4 tbsp chopped
Cashews – 3 tbsp chopped

Walnuts-2 tbsp chopped
poppy seeds 3 tsp
Cardamom Powder – 1 large pinch

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. First chop the pistachio, almonds, cashews, walnuts finely and keep aside.picsart_1483626099498
  2. Remove the seeds from the dates and using a food processor or grinder pulse the dates in small batches. This will make their small bits and save time of individual chopping of dates.picsart_1483626155679
  3. Heat up 1 tbsp ghee in a non stick wok and shallow fry Almonds and Cashew nuts on low to medium flame . You will get nice aroma from the nuts. Keep stirring for 1-2 minutes or until cashews turn light pink. Drain and remove from the wok and keep aside.picsart_1483626257659

  5. Now roast the Poppy seeds on low flame in the same wok with left over Ghee for 1 minute. Keep stirring continuously .picsart_1483626326168
  6. At the end add the dates in the wok along with poppy seeds. Mix properly and put off the flame. Now add the roasted nuts followed by Cardamom powder. Mix everything nicely and allow the mixture to cool down for 5 minutes.picsart_1483626565727
  7. Once the mixture cools a little, mix it with hands to form a dough.
  8. Pinch small portion and roll out into a small gooseberry shape ball between the palms. Repeat the same for all the Ladoos. You may make big ones or small bite size depending on your choice.picsart_1483626887744
  9. Keep them in an air tight container. Serve with warm milk as a healthy and filling Breakfast. NOTES:
  • Choice and quantity of the nuts can be changed based on your preference.
  • While sauteing the dates, be sure not to overcook them. Or else the sugars may burn and the ladoo will taste bitter or else the sugar might caramelize and ladoo will harden after cooling.
  • Slightly grease the mixie jar or food processor before pulsing the dates. This will help the dates not stick to the jar.

Powdered Sugar (Boora)- 2 cup
Almonds (Badam)- 1/2 cup
keshew nut 1/2 cup
Raisins (Kishmish)- 1/2 cup (optional)
50 gms goond edible (powdered)

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Heat Clarified Butter (Ghee) in a heavy bottom pan and saute keshew and almonds in it till almonds are golden in color.
  2. Keep them aside and allow to cool down to room temperature and then grind into a coarse powder.
  3. In the same pan heat remaining Clarified Butter (Ghee) and add Whole Wheat Flour (Gehu Ka Aata) in  it and mix well.
  4. Roast the Whole Wheat Flour (Gehu Ka Aata) over very low flame for 25 – 30 minutes stirring it continuously till it gets a nice golden brown color and you can sense a nice aroma of roasted flour coming out of the pan. (Remember after 20 minutes flour (aata) will have a tendency to get burn so be careful and don’t over roast it).
  5. Sprinkle powdered goond over roasting atta 1 tsp at a time when roasting is completed properly209
  6. Saute the flour for next 2-3 minutes.
  7. Meanwhile grind the keshewnut (kaju) and almonds in a grinder.
  8. Add this kaju  and Almonds powder to the Flour (Aata) and mix well.210
  9. Add Raisins (Kishmish) and mix well.
  10. Switch off the heat and let the mixture come to room temperature, then add powdered sugar and mix very well. (You don’t add the powdered sugar  when the mixture is hot otherwise  heat will cause sugar to melt and caramelize and that will spoil the texture of laddoo).211
  11. Grease your hands with a little Clarified Butter (Ghee) and start binding the ladoo.
  12. Do not cool down the flour completely, keep it a little warm, it will help in binding the Ladoo easily.
  13. Bind all the ladoo in the same way and keep them in a plate.

Notes:

  • When done keep ladoo in a plate with a little distance between each other, else they can stick to each other and may loose their shape.
  • If you find it difficult to bind ladoo or you find your flour dry then you can add warm Clarified Butter (Ghee) in the flour and mix it well, increase the amount gradually till you attain the desired consistency to make ladoo.

Happy Cooking and Enjoy Eating…..!!!
