I have used dates, figs, almonds, raisins, desiccated coconut to make these ladoos. Skip the desiccated coconut if you don’t like the coconut aroma.

There is no exact recipe to make dry fruits laddu. the proportions of the dry fruits can vary according to your choice. Just make sure the dates & figs are a little extra. Since the dates and figs here help in binding the ladoos. There is absolutely no need to add any sugar to the recipe. The sweetness from the dates, figs and raisins makes for enough sweetnees in the ladoos…. In fact a little extra sweet.

Use pitted dates. If the dates have seeds, then remove the seeds and chop them. These ladoos can also be gift wrapped and sent to your family or friends during the Diwali season.

The best part of this ladoo recipe is that they can be had for the Navratri fasting season giving a good dose of nutrition and energy….. As well for the Diwali festival when you want to make something quick & easy sweet or dessert. They are good for growing up kids also and they are going to love it. These ladoos can also be taken with a glass of hot milk for breakfast. You can also check this Badam ladoo, Badam halwa and Dry fruits barfi recipe.

Addition of Gond or edible gum is also possible in these ladoos. I have a similar recipe which uses dates and edible gum. These will be perfect during the Indian winters since they are warming to the body. Since the gond ladoos are ideal for winters, I will be making them in winters. Shall post the recipe then.

    1. you can add gond. i have never used roasted gond. so i do not know how it is added. we always fry gond in ghee till they puff up. then break them or powder and then add.

  1. Hello Ms. Dassana,
    Very nice & nutritious recipe it is. I will surely try this. One question is there in my mind that whether we can add other dry fruits like walnut etc in these laddoos? One more thing i want to tell that cashew are included in the ingredient list but there is no mention of it in the recipe.5 stars

    1. thanks anupam. yes you can add walnuts. i will add the cashews part in the recipe. i skipped it. thanks for letting me know.
