Oats Dry Fruits Laddu can be made for festivals like Diwali and can be easily prepared even by beginners. You will totally love the intense flavour of the laddu along with powdered oats and the interludes of crunchy nuts. So, why are you waiting…….just grab available nuts from your pantry and get going. In case you do not have dates, replace with jaggery or powdered sugar.

Easy Steps to make Oats Dry Fruits Laddu:

  • Pit, chop dates and set aside.
  • Gather all the nuts you would like to include in the Oats Dry Fruits Laddu. You can adjust the quantity of each variety of nut as per your preference.
  • 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. In the end roast dry coconut pieces too.

NOTE:

Today, I’m roasting all of them together (except for dry coconut) as I’m in a rush….and I must say….even this works!! I have added dry coconut pieces after the nuts were half roasted. For best results and especially if you are preparing for the first time, I recommend you to roast separately.

  • Coarsely powder the nuts and transfer to a bowl.
  • Dry roast sesame seeds separately in a pan over low heat till the colour changes and you get an aroma. They are too tiny, so better to roast them separately.

My Notes:

  1. There is no particular oder to roast the ingredients. It is better to roast all dry ingredients first and then dates at the end so that it is still warm while binding and doesn’t turn hard once it cools down.
  2. If you want more sweet, then add jaggery, brown sugar or honey.
  3. You can increase dates according to your taste. You can also add figs to this.
  4. The quantities and proportions of nuts is your choice. This recipe is completely trial and error and also depends on your requirements and taste. There is no exact fixed proportions of any ingredient…. just experiment!!
  5. You can also add pecans, raisins, dried cranberries and any dry fruits of your choice.
  6. If you are not able to bind the mixture or if the mixture is too dry, add some ghee and shape them.
  7. While making these ladoos make sure no wet utensils or hands are used as it can reduce the shelf life of laddus.
