Intake of one ladoo in the morning time makes u more healthy.

Dry fruits & Nuts ladoo is the best way to satisfy our search of healthy nutrition-rich recipes for a day.Yes!Intake of this single ladoo provides you the full energy which you need for a whole-day.
I tasted this from Anandha Bhavan sweet box,i loved it a lot.And recently i heard it through my friend too.So my long-term plan comes to an end.
Believe me,it tastes so good,shelf life also longer.I always double the quantity of nuts powder and used for nuts milk too.
For Kids,use this dry fruits and nuts(before rolling) paste as a bread/chappathi spread.
