Ladoos are a great hit with me . I remember I never used to make them , I would drool over them and wondered how you guys did them so beautifully . I still remember it was one of Priya Srinivasan ‘s recipe which hit the nail on the head and I made the Ladoo. After that there has been no looking back . Here are some of the Ladoos that you can enjoy…and a proof that now I can make them .
Since I have picked Festival Recipes for the first week ,I made Kaju Gulab Barfi and Paan Ladoos for the first two days and for the third day it is yet another Ladoo . This time it’s a Rose flavoured Ladoo with Pistachios stuffing .The base of the Ladoo is coconut and it is flavoured with rose . I used Jannate Gulab , plus few drops rose flavouring along with some food color to give it the pink hue. For stuffing I coarsely ground pistachios and added just a bit of sugar syrup just to make the stuffing a little gooey.
The ladoos turned out absolutely delicious and attracted everyone . They look very festive and can be served for any festival .
