Easy Date Nuts Balls Recipe - Dry Fruit Laddu-Ladoo Recipe
Preparation time :15 mins
Makes: 8 – 10 balls/ladoo

Ingredients :

Pitted Dates : 15-20
Pistachios : 10-14
Almonds : 7-10
Cashews : 5
Golden Raisins : 5-8
Dried Apricot : 5
Optional : 
Cardamom Powder : 2 pinches
Unsweetened Shredded Coconut : 1 cup + 1/2 cup for coating (sweetened is fine too, but the dates on their own are very sweet)

How to make Date Nuts Balls - Dry Fruit Laddu-Ladoo :

1. Soak almonds in warm water for 10-15 minutes and peel of their skin and pat dry.
2. Chop the dates, almonds, pistachios, cashews, raisins into small pieces with help of large knife or using a pestle or a quick pulse in the food processor.
3. Combine everything until well incorporated. The consistency should be fairly smooth and similar to a thick paste. Now add the cardamom powder and mix well.
4. Divide the mixture into around 8 – 10 portions.
5. Take each portion into hand and roll it in your palms to form small balls/ laddoos.
6. Optional - Roll them in shredded coconut. (Note : It reduces the shelf life of Laddu/ Balls.)
7. Store in an airtight container and serve as a snack and Enjoy!!


Notes:
  • Make sure dates are not too hard and dried, If dates are too hard, soak them for a hour or cover and microwave for couple of seconds.
Variations:
  • You can also add any kind of nuts and dried fruits according to your taste and preference.
