Hai Guys..Hope everyone had a busy weekend, preparing for diwali..I was having a busy one too. Actually I felt so lazy to making sweets at home alone, so I went to my mum's place and cooked along with her. We made muruku, mysorepak, gulab jumun, kaju katli, besan ladoo..It was awesome cooking together with my mum and sisters. I spend the whole day there and came home late..
Now back to the recipe..The cool thing about this ladoo is, it is so easy to make, but taste so healthy and yummy. I love the colour which was in the ladoo without adding any food colouring. I love those crunchy bits of cashew inbetween these ladoos..I hope you will try it this diwali and let me know how it turned out.
