Dates and nuts ladoos

Everytime when I roast nuts  they spread so aromatic  tasty flavours through out my house that it reminds me the festival times.Diwali is not complete without dates and nuts ladoos and all other types of ladoos and sweets.

Dates and nuts ladoos  are probably most quickest ladoos to make .Also this type of sweets are full of nutrient values.Dates are good for your digestive system,reduce your blood pressure,most importantly they are anti-Inflammatory and has got good level of vitamin B6 which is good for healthy brain.

I have used medjool dates because they are soft and  large.If you don’t find medjool dates you can buy other kind of dates .If they are hard just soak them into little hot water and grind them.Nowaday you can easily find pitted dates from the super market.I have’t grind them because they ware very soft .If you feel like you can always grind them with the help of little hot water.

Nuts are good source of antioxidants ,protein, vitamins .I have used three types of seeds and dry coconut flakes. I have used melon seeds, poppy seeds and flaxseeds.This seeds have got lots of fiber,calcium,iron and many more good values.You can choose seeds that you like to have.You can find these seeds from any Indian groceries.

What you will  need for around 16 ladoos :

23 deseeded medjool dates or any large and soft dates crashed

1 big cup of mixed chopped nuts (I have used pecan,brazil,cashew,almond,pistachio and walnuts)

flaxseed or sesame seeds large table spoon to go in the mixture and some more to coat the sweets

Poppy seeds(khaskhas) 1 large table spoon to go in the mixture and some more to coat the sweets

Melon seeds (charmagaz)1 large table spoon to go in the mixture and some more to coat the sweets

Coconut flakes (dry) 1 large table spoon to go in the mixture and some more to coat the sweets

1 table spoon coconut oil or clarified butter or butter or sunflower oil
