Sweets form an integral part of any celebration, from burfis to puddings, we cherish them for any occasion. Dry fruit sweets are delicious and loved by all, more so if it is sugar free like this dates ladoo, it is guilt free indulgence, right ? They are not only tasty, but easy to make and ideal for any occassion.

With the festive season ahead, we are heading for the major festival Ugadi and a new beginning. It is celebrated as Hindu New Year. It is also celebrated as Chota Nav Ratri and many people fast during this period. Thus, we at Desi Bloggers Connect decided to make a collection of “Farali Recipes” and my contribution is Dry Fruit Ladoo.

I have Sabudana Khichdi and Sabudana Wada in Appe Pan which are ideal for fasting. The black chana sundal is also ideal on these days. I have recently put many sweets which are apt on these days, Kiwi Kesari, Carrot Halwa or the Ash gourd halwa may be taken in small quantity along with some savoury dish.
