A winter ritual in my home every year is the making of gond ke Ladoo . Dadima ka nushka to keep us healthy warm and strong during winters is to have one ladoo a day . We usually make a big batch for the winter months and have one heated up each day.
Gond is a good source of calcium this helps in keeping the bones and joints strong. Being heaty, it hereby helps in providing heat to the body during cold winters. Also given to nursing mothers during their confinement period as it helps in strengthening the backbones and aids in lactation.
Care should be taken whilst buying gond. Good quality gond should be sourced. Also, the gond should be fried well as a slightly raw one can cause stomach problems.
So here’s the traditional recipe of my home. Each household has their own secrets. Some also include coconut, turmeric, ground ginger etc in it.
So what’s the wait for! Hurry and make this soon before the winter ends. Do share the feedback as always!
