Dry Fruits Ladoo

Dry fruits ladoo is an easy to make healthy snack that you can make for kids. It is made with any kind of dry fruits. In this recipe I used dates, figs and raisins. You can pick and choose the variety of dry fruits you use and you can change the quantity used as per your choice. There is no need to add any sweetener as the dates, figs and raisin are very sweet to taste.

You can make big sized ladoos also, I made very small balls as my kids are small they prefer the small size. I have used copra thenga to make this ladoo due to it's high nutritional value. Copra thengai increases brain powder, reduces cholesterol and prevents anemia. If you don't have it, you can use dessicated coconut too.
