HAPPY DIWALI ALL.
Today is Diwali so thought of sharing a sweet as well as healthy recipe.
Today it’s also Children’s Day so this recipe is also kids friendly recipe .
We have been eating plain nuts for years as part if of our daily diet as it keeps us healthy.Now it’s time to innovate something from the bests of the nuts family.So here I have a snack bar/nuts and dates ladoo that is tasty and most importantly stays healthy since the dish is free from oil,sugar and jaggery
Dessicated coconut…1/2 cup
Can add walnut,pistachio and pumpkin seeds.
.Soak dates in hot water for 2 hrs.It will get softened. Blendit into a smooth paste.
.Dry roast oats in a kadai and powder it.
1.In a kadai or a thick bottomed vessel addcashews,almonds,groundnut
,sesame, dessicated coconut and roast it.In a few minutes it will turn golden aromatic and crisp.Remove from fire and keep aside.
2. In the same kadai add the dates paste and cook for 5 mts.When it gets thickened add the roasted nuts mixture to it.
3. Add honey,cardomom powder and salt mix well.
4. Add powdered oats to it combine well.Moisture gets absorbed and it holds shape
5.Transfer it to a tray,level it and refrigerate it for an hour.
It will set completely Now you can cut into pieces.If you would like to have it as a snack bar.
If you like to have it as a ladoo first shape into balls instead of levelling it in a tray and then refrigerate it.
