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, 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 :(.Dry fruit laddu's are rich in nutrients and sweet desserts which is prepared specially on Holi, Diwali or any special occasion.

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.

To make these dry fruit laddu first roast wholewheat flour patiently with some quantity of ghee. It usually takes 20-25 min till it becomes golden brown in color and the raw smell of flour goes away. 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.

  1. My mom-in -law used to make these ladoos and I loved them so much that I used to gulp down 2-3 ladoos at one go. That is the reason, I don’t make it myself. You have reminded me now and I’m yearning to eat them. Don’t know how long I’ll be able to curb my temptation.

  2. We call these goond ke laddus too! and they are made at the start of winters every year! I love them… They look so delicious and pretty. We don’t add makhanas to the laddus but looks like we’ve been missing on something 🙂 Thank you for sharing the recipe…

  3. Super healthy and yummylicious ladoo. I make dry fruits ladoo often to keep my sweet cravings under control. Your recipe sounds nice with whole wheat flour, seeds and edible gum. Next time when I do, will give a try like this. Between, I loved your beautiful shots.

  4. Laddoos surely look so tempting. Adding edible gum to it makes its crunchy. Haven’t tried making laddoos with roasted wheat flour. So sorry that you’ve not spoken to your father for long.. makes me feel sad for you Bhawana.

  5. Oh my!! Such delicious laddoos; usually I too make Gond aur besan ke laddoo in winters … never tried the atta version though…. would really love to try them this coming winter season
