Easy Steps to follow for Date Nut Ladoo:

 

  • Pit and chop dates.
  • Gather all the nuts you would like to include in the Date Nut Ladoo. I have almost take equal quantities of each nut.
  • Roughly chop the nuts.

  • Dry roast the nuts in a pan, one by one over low heat. They should be roasted but should not change the colour. Every nut needs different roasting time, so make sure to roast them separately.
  • Once roasting is done, you can run the nuts together in a food processor/blender just for a few seconds to get a coarse powder. You get half powder and half chunks of nuts. This will give a good consistency to the ladoo and also taste good.

  • Heat a little ghee in a pan over low heat, add in the chopped dates and roast till you get a soft mixture like you see in the picture below (to your right). Smash dates while you are mixing them.
  • This will take about 8 to 10 minutes depending on the texture of the dates (soft or hard).

  • Sprinkle cardamom powder and mix well.
  • Grease your hand with ghee, take small portions and start making balls when the mixture is still warm.
  • Optionally, you can roll the balls over roasted sesame seeds.

My Notes:

  1. If you want more sweet, then add brown sugar or honey. But, for my taste, this is more than sufficient!!
  2. You can increase dates according to your taste. Make sure to use soft dates. You can also add figs to this.
  3. The quantities and proportions of nuts is your choice, but maintaining the minimum ratio of dates to nuts is important.
  4. Start making Ladoo when mixture is slightly warm because if it cools down, you won’t be able to make the ladoos.
  5. You can also add pecans, raisins, dried cranberries and any dry fruits of your choice.
  6. While making these ladoos make sure no wet utensils or hands are used as it can spoil the ladoos and you cannot store it for long.
