This year dry fruit laddu I prepared the way my father used to make for us during Holi. Sometimes we made in Diwali as well, though he always planned different sweet’s to prepare for Diwali. Almond, cashew, pistachio, edible gum, pumpkin seeds and lotus seeds with wholewheat flour and jaggery are the ingredients used in these laddus with ghee.

While preparing I was remembering my father and missing him too much. Before marriage too he used to call us in the kitchen, assign the work who will do what, what is the menu, what are the sweets and savory items to prepare. Munno tu ye kar, Neetu tu ye kar (Munno do this, Neetu you have to do this) his voice was echoing in my ears. It is been so many years that I have not heard this word from him. He is alive (may GOD bless him with good health) but we are not in talking terms. Don’t know why I still miss him a lot :(.

This Holi I was alone at home with kids as the husband is onsite from office. From 28 Feb only I was feeling homesick, did not make any special sweet or food at home on Holi. Today in the morning I felt guilty for being so selfish that I could not feed my kids a festival meal. Today I got up early and before making breakfast I wanted to finish preparing dry fruit laddus. Both my kids love these laddus so much.

Roast all the dry fruits too in ghee. In summer edible gum can be skipped as it contains heat-generating properties. Edible gum is specially used in winters and for the ladies after giving birth.
