Dry Nuts Ladoo – Diwali Special

Days before the Diwali festival my mom used to start preparing traditional delicious sweets and savories and we as kids used to enjoy them. Diwali is a festival which has a custom of exchanging   sweets and savories that are especially made at home.

This weekend I made Dry Nuts Ladoo which is very easy to make as well as tastes delicious. These ladoo’s are not only delicious but also highly nutritious. When I was kid my mom used to prepare them quiet regularly.

To prepare these ladoo’s I used dry Nuts like cashews, almonds, walnuts, peanuts and used jaggery instead of sugar as jaggery is rich in iron.


Almonds – ½ cup
Cashews – ½ cup
Walnuts – ½ cup
Peanuts – 1 cup
Jaggery – ½ cup – ¾ cup based on the sweetness


  • In a pan take peanuts and fry them for 3-4 mins, cool them and remove they skin and keep aside.

  • Dry roast almonds in a pan with ¼ tsp of ghee and let them cool
  • Dry roast cashews in a pan with ¼ tsp of ghee and let them cool
  • Dry roast walnuts in a pan with ¼ tsp of ghee and let them cool
  • Once all the nuts are cooled
  • Take grated jaggery, almonds, cashews, walnuts and grind them into smooth mixture.
  • This smooth mixture becomes little oily which help to make ladoo shape.
  • If you think ladoo is not forming proper round shape add little ghee and press hard to form a ladoo.
  • Store them in air tight container. Enjoy!!!
