Laddu

Laddus like this Gond Badam ka Laddu hold the flavours of winter in a single mouthful. They are hearty and warm, bringing the mellow heat of ginger and pepper along with the wholesome richness of almonds and coconut together in each delicious bite.

A traditional winter dessert as well as a restorative food eaten by new mothers, these laddus are considered wholesome, healthy and are even thought to immunise against colds.

Note: Gond is a slighty chewy, gummy resin that looks like little crystals. It is considered a warming food, great to be eaten during cold winters.
