Chocolate Dry Fruit Ladoo

Dry Fruit Ladoos, i use whole nuts and combine Marie Biscuits and milk to shape them. This time, i even wanted my son to taste it, so i tried tweaking it a bit by adding cocoa powder and powdered nuts. Tasted great!!! And My Kiddo too enjoyed having them.

Ingredients
2 tbsp Almonds/Badam
2 tbsp Cashew
2 tbsp Pista
2 tbsp Walnuts
11/2 tbsp Cocoa Powder
1 tbsp Dessicated Coconut + 2 tsp for coating
2 &1/2 – 3 tbsp Dark Brown Sugar
2 pods of cardamom (Optional) or A generous pinch of Cinnamon (optional, but i love them)

Method

Take a MW safe Flat Dish, Coat with some oil/Ghee add the nuts and MW high for 3 minutes, Take them out and toss after every 1 minute. Once done, take them out and add dessicated coconut, while the nuts are in the same pan and toss well. Let it cool.

In a Mixer, grind the nuts and coconut mixture to a fine powder, While grinding itself u can see the mixture coming together. Add Brown Sugar and Cocoa Powder and Grind again. If using cardamom, add them along with the sugar and grind. Transfer the mixture to Flat Plate, add Cinnamon and mix well. Shape them into Small balls and coat with Dessicated Coconut. Tada!! Healthy Ladoos ready in 20 minutes!!!!
