I love making ladoos, because they are so versatile, they can be made pretty much with any flour. I have quite a few ladoo recipes in my blog. Ladoos will make a quick sweet for any festivals. Even if you have no time on hand, you can make these in minutes. For this diwali i made three ladoos..This is my first one..Will share other two soon. So i hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turned out for you..
