Preparation Time : 10 mins
Cooking Time : 10 to 15 mins
Makes : 20 ladoos


Dates - 25 deseeded
Pistachios / Pista - 1/2 cup
Badam / Almonds - 1/2 cup
Cashewnuts - 1/2 cup
Tutti fruity - 3 tblspn (optional)
Dessicated Coconut - 3 tblspn (optional)
Ghee - 1 tsp for greasing hands


Preheat the oven to 180 Degree C / 360 Degree F. Take all three nuts in a roasting pan and pop them in oven for 5 to 10 mins. They will be toasted. Let them cool a bit. Now take them in a blender and crush them coarsely.

If you dont have oven, you can roast the nuts in a dry pan. Roast them for 5 to 10 mins on a medium heat till they are nicely toasted. Remove them to a plate and let them cool down. Now you can crush them in a blender.

Now take your dates in the same blender and crush them coarsely.

Heat a nonstick pan. Add the crushed dates in the pan and start stiring them. You dont have to use any oil. Mix them for a good 5 mins.

Now add in the crushed nuts, coconut, tutti fruity and mix well. Keep stiring.

At a point the mixture will come together and form into a ball.

Remove that to a bowl and let them cool a bit.

Grease your hands with some ghee and take small portion from the mixture. Shape into balls and arrange in a plate.

Optional: You can roll these ladoos in dessicated coconut if you wish.

Store these ladoos in a air tight container.

  9. Hi Aarthi .. finally my search for a food blog ends with urs blog .. i have tried couple of ur recipe and must say .. outcome is delicious if followed to core .

    I need a help here , yesterday i made a dry fruit laddu and morning when i ate it was bit hard .. though i kept in a air tight container and it was not kept in fridge as well .

    I had to heat laddu in microwave so that it can be little loose and my teeth can easily bite it :).

    Where did i went wrong or what can be done so that laddu are bit loose and easy to bite .


  10. @PREETI ARUNdont over cook it, reduce the cooking time.

  11. Hi, can I use date paste instead of dates? And if yes then what will be the measurements. TIA

  12. Hi Arthi ...
    I love your recipes. Do keep up the excellent work. I have a doubt though. Can we or do we need to add honey in d laddoos. If we do will it get too sticky and change the consistency?

  13. Excellent receipe and very easy to follow. Pl make your search slot more prominent so it is easy to get and try various receipes. Thanks

  14. Thanks dear..I was wondering what to do with a pack of dates bought last month.
