Oats and Dry Fruits Laddoo 2


I made dry fruits laddoo for last year Diwali with Jaggery which is crispier. This is a different one, more juicy. My kids like the juicy one while we like the crispy ones also. Oats and dry fruits laddoo is a healthier sweet again with very less Ghee and no additional sugar. Dates and Fig have sugar but they are good ones. So guilt free enjoyment for this Deepavali.

What you need?

Rolled Oats-1 cup
Almonds-1 cup
Pecans-1 cup
walnuts-1 cup
Dates-1 cup
Fig-1 cup
Raisins-1 cup
Milk or just water-1/2 cup

Ghee-1 Tbsp
Cardomom powder-1/4 tsp

Prep work:

1. Coarsely blend all the dry fruits(almonds, pecans and walnuts) seperately

How to make?

1. Heat Ghee in kadai and fry oats. Set aside
2. Boil milk or water and add dates and fig till they becomes mushy.
3. Add the oats, coarsely ground dry fruits, raisins, cardomom powder into the mushy mixture. Mix throughly and shape them into balls or into semi circles as you like.

My kids love to help me in shaping this sweet. It will be a good job to just give them a measuring spoon and press into it. Like my idea?

Tip: You can add any other nuts of your choice too here.
