Gond ke laddu (edible gum ladoo) are one of the nutritious and delicious sweet made during winter season. These are beneficial for people who are suffering from joint pains and especially for women and children. In India Pakistan subcontinent it is believed that these have medicinal values. Edible gum is a plant originated dried sap of the plant. It provides heat to the body due to the addition of wheat flour and nuts. So these can prevent seasonal cold not only in kids but also in grown-ups. Regular consumption of gond ke laddu for several weeks will refresh the entire body, strengthen bones and will improve immunity and digestion. The recipe that I am sharing today is more healthy in a way that I made gond ke laddu with gur.
Heat a wok on low flame and add poppy seeds in it. Dry roast on low flame for few minutes till the seeds turn fragrant. Take out of wok and keep aside to cool down.
In the same wok add sesame seeds and dry roast these as well till fragrant. This will take about 4-5 minutes on low flame. After roasted take out and keep aside.
Add 1-2 tablespoon of ghee in the wok and add all the dry fruits in it. Roast the dry fruits for 2-3 minutes, take out and let these cool down.
Add 2 tablespoon more ghee (or as much required) and fry gond (edible gum) in it on medium to low flame. Gond will turn fluffy and crunchy after frying. Take it out as well and let it cool down completely.
In the remaining ghee add crushed coconut and fry it. If required add 1 tablespoon more ghee in it. Be care ful while roasting coconut as it can burn quickly. Take out khopra and keep aside.
Add remaining ghee in the wok and add wheat flour in it. Roast the wheat flour on medium to low flame for 7-8 minutes till it turns fragrant.
Let everything cool down completely and then grind all the roasted items (except flour & coconut) into fine powder.
Now in the wok add gur (jaggery) along with water. Let it melt on medium to low flame.
When completely melted add all the grind ingredients and flour in it. Quickly combine everything as it will starts to set.
