Methi Goond ladoo/ Fenugreek ladoo


The best way of keeping oneself warm during winter is having one methi ladoo, that’s what my granny used to say. You won’t be coughing n sneezing if you had these healthy ladoos.

I am sharing with you the traditional way of making these ladoos, nothing instant here. Little patience is required and you have a box full of health made by your hands. Which is the safest in the whole world.

One will find different recipes on the internet for sure, but you will love this more.

Winter’s are the season when our digestion is good, in this season our body needs extra nutrients which can be fulfilled with these ladoos.

Methi ladoo can’t be made only with methi as they are very bitter in taste. To make them more tasty and healthy we add here dry fruits, some edible gum and wheat flour with a few more ingredients. To know that check out the recipe below. This incredible recipe was shared by our family friend’s mom Mrs Dond thankful for her way of sharing.

Dryfruit Ladoo/How to make dryfruit ladoo/no sugar or jaggery ladoo


Off late one of my twin kid was not feeling energetic in the morning and whole day would just go in sitting in front of the T.V which i was too much concern about,after repeatedly asking whats wrong with you? The ans was i don’t feel like doing anything and i am more worried, went to my paediatric and got consulted..He just gave a smile and said nothing to worry as my twins are very fussy about eating he said to make them eat dryfruit ladoo daily one.The whole energy and the required amout of strength will be back.So,actually these ladoos are for them which now the whole family has .And the best part they are completely satvik and can be eaten during your fasting days.The dryfruit quantity can be of your choice only the khajur part has to remain same as it gives sweetness to the ladoo.

You do get these dryfruit ladoo in the market also ,only the rate is bit too much and at times the product being not fresh it has a different smell as well.So its better to make them in the house with everything freshly brought . That keeps our mind relaxed as well ,that we are have a good product.But today’s hectic schedule where bothhusband and wife are working it becomes quite difficult for any one to think of making dryfruit ladoo, it sounds like grannys work.like oh my god this only my mother or grandma can do its might be difficult, but believe me when i can make these ladoo all can make.

Coming to the recipe ,lets get the in the kitchen
