To start with this year’s Diwali recipes, here is an easy and simple, sugar-free Dates nuts laddu recipe. This recipe is similar to Dates and nuts roll I posted few years back. But its procedure is much easier than dates roll. I tried this with the leftover pack of dates. It tastes so good and flavorful too. With a nice flavor of ghee and crunchy taste of nuts, this dates ladoo is sure a healthy choice for kids and adults with good calories. Use soft dates (Medjool dates) if you like soft ladoo or use regular, hard dates like Lion dates for slightly, chewy and hard ladoo. Its your choice finally. Chopping the nuts is little time consuming otherwise this ladoo can be prepared in few minutes. If you want to ease this chopping job, you can grind coarsely and then roast it. Friends, do try this healthy, sugarless sweet for this Diwali and enjoy ! Lets see how to make dates and nuts ladoo with step by step pictures.

Note

  • Adjust the quantity of nuts as per your taste. I used 1/4 cup, you can use 1/2 cup too.
  • Do not add sugar or honey. Its not necessary.
  • You can use soft dates or regular dates. But taste and texture of ladoo differs.
  • Do not over cook the mixture after adding dates paste. Ladoo may become hard and chewy after cooling down. Just cook till it comes together as a mass.
  • Greasing your hands with ghee helps to give a shine to ladoo and also adds nice flavor.
Try this easy, yummy dates and nuts ladoo recipe and enjoy !
