PEANUT LADOO-KIDS SNACK

  PEANUT LADOO WITH IMG_2016 FIVE MAIN INGREDIENTS.

                              To lead a Healthy life and proper development Kids require additional nutrition in their growing years.

                                 Today I’m sharing an easy dessert or Lunch Box snack ( My mother use to pack these in our Lunch Box) Peanut ladoo which doesn’t require much cooking except dry roasting and grinding. I have used less Ghee , if you feel difficult in binding add some ghee and bind ladoo . Ghee is Healthy for Kids when used in moderation. Include raisins which provide natural sweetness and Jaggery which is a good substitute for Sugar and has its own unique Health Benefits.              Other ingredient I used is Sesame seeds which is one of the Oldest spices to man dating back to 3000 B.C . Low in GI and valuable source of dietary protein that are essential for growing Children. Cardamom is a Vanilla Bean for Indian desserts.

                                         Peanuts are called the Brain food as they contain Vitamin B3 or niacin which improves Brain function and Boosts Memory. They possess the nutrition qualities of the both Legumes and nuts and hence offer several benefits for Skin , Hair and Health . The flavor of toasted  nuts improves their texture  , sweetness from Jaggery and raisins , intensely aromatic flavor from Cardamom and rich and nutty flavor from sesame seeds makes one tasty treat for Kids and Family.Source : Health Magazines
