We come to the end of this week where I have been posting Protein Rich recipes with Nuts as star ingredients .
These super energy ladoos are totally with an Indian flavour of cardamoms. We have dates , nuts and poppy seeds. You guys know my passion for Ladoos, they just added on to my previous collection of Ladoos. Here are a few which fall under the Protein Rich theme.
Today’s ladoos are with dates , which are a very good source of protein, and along with other nuts they provide you with roughly 5% of what you need for the day. They are rich in fibre and potassium too .
I had planned for a black bean energy ball , but when I made these for Raksha Bandhan we all loved them . I made a big batch of these Protein Rich ladoos and they were a big hit with all . You can scale down the recipe for a smaller batch .
Fruit & Nut Ladoo
2.5 kg dates, pitted and chopped
500 gms almonds, coarsely ground
500 gms cashews , coarsely ground
250 gms pistachios , coarsely ground
250 gms oats , ground to a fine powder
5-6 tbsp cardamom powder
Roast all the nuts individually .
Coarsely grind them , but do not powder them .
Roast the oats , till crisp and make a fine powder.
Mix all the nuts , reserve a few for rolling the ladoos .
Mix the dates , oats powder , nuts and cardamom .
One needs to mix them well with both hands till everything is well incorporated .
You shall see a glaze on this Nutty dough .
Pinch out lemon sized balls and roll them into ladoos .
Mix poppy seeds to the reserved Nut powder .
Roll the ladoos into this and place them into a airtight container .
The ladoos shall stay good for at least a month , longer if refrigerated.
