Dates and nuts laddu process

Preparation method:

  1. Remove seeds and chop the dates into a fine pieces, set aside.
  2. Heat a pan, dry roast almonds, cashew nuts and pistachios each separately until they are slightly golden brown. Allow them to cool completely and grind them to a coarse powder (as shown in the picture).
  3. Heat ghee in a pan, add finely chopped dates and cook on low flame until it turns soft about 1 or 2 mins. By the time dates will absorb all the ghee completely.
  4. Now add coarsely powdered nuts and mix well nicely, then switch off the flame. Allow the mixture to cool completely and make a gooseberry sized ball, store it in airtight container and refrigerate. Dates and nuts laddu is ready.

Notes:

  • You need soft dates to prepare this laddu. So i used medjool dates which is very soft and gentle.
  • Since dates and nuts mixture is sticky, you may find it difficult to make laddu. If so then apply little ghee on your palm and then roll it to laddu.
  • You can serve the dry fruits laddu immediately or store in an air tight container and refrigerate for later use.
