Paushtik (healthy) ladoo

Schools have reopened after the winter break & mother's must be worried about giving their child something healthy to munch on during their lunch break. A lot of parents are today cautious about their child's food habits. I am very particular about what my kids eat. Being a homemaker, I make the most of my free time by preparing healthy snacks for them. Wheat ladoo or paushtik ladoo is one of the favorite snacks I prepare. Its a healthy snack & kids enjoying eating their favourite snack in the tiffin. Apart from wheat which is the main ingredient of this recipe, dinka (Edible gum) has a lot of health benefits too. Dinka is very high in calcium & generates body heat, therefore it is recommended to consume it during winters. It helps in bone development of growing children. My kids love eating this healthy & yummy ladoo. Here's the recipe.

  1. 2 cups wheat flour 
  2. ½ cup khareek powder (dry dates powder)
  3. ½ cup almond powder 
  4. ¼ cup poppy seeds powder
  5. ½  cup poha
  6. ¼ cup eating gum
  7. 1½  cup powdered sugar
  8. 1 cup ghee
  9. ½  cup desiccated coconut
  10. 1 tsp cardamom powder as per taste.
  1. Roast wheat flour, almond and khareek powder separately on some ghee until golden brown.
  2. Dry roast the coconut and poppy seeds.
  3. Fry the  poha in some ghee. crush with hand while making ladoo
  4. Fry eating gum in some  ghee, crush with hand when adding it to ladoo.
  5. Add all the ingredients including powdered sugar in a mixing bowl.
