Fresh dates and dry fruits ladoo

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,
How are you? I am happy that I could take out time for another post. Actually all these days I thought I can not type on the cellphone and I am not getting time to sit infront of the computer. But, now no more excuses. I will post the recipes from my cellphone itself.
Home made food is always the best and many food act as the medicine too. Having deep rooted culture, our India offers countless ideas or recipes as a medicine.
Here is one among those treasures which acts as magic for many diseases.
Yes, I am talking about laddoos made of fresh dates and dry fruits. I have already posted a recipe of gondh ke laddoo long back. It has it's own benefits and who can eat it. The link is  Here for the recipe. Please visit and let me know.
Now, why again this type? Because this laddoo has NO more ghee, NO SUGAR OR JAGGERY.
Easy to make and can store it for a week.
And benefits!!! From our skin care to iron deficiency to weight loss and constipation!
                
         

So, what are you waiting for? Go through the recipe, I am sure all the ingredients are in your kitchen. It takes only 20-30 minutes make these laddoos.
Recipe :
It makes 15-16 small laddoos (small lemon size)
           
Fresh dates - 1cup, deseeded and cubed
Dry fruits(almonds, cashew nuts, raisins, walnuts) - 1/2 cup
Dry coconut grated - 1/3 cup
Edible Gondh - 1tbsp, fried in a spoon of ghee.
Alalvi (garden cress seeds)- 2 tsp, again fries in the same pan.
Keep these to cool.
Put dates in a blender or mixi for few seconds to get it in to coarse powder. Transfer it into a wide open bowl. Now add the dry fruits and grind to make small pieces or even to a coarse powder.

Transfer this into the same bowl in which you kept the dates.
Add fried Gondh and alalvi and mix it properly. And take a small portion to make a laddoo of small lime size.

Eat it or give it to kids everyday with a glass of milk in the morning after the breakfast. Immunity will increase, if there is low Hb count , this will help to increase it. It's very tasty, healthy and you just can't wait one. But don't eat more than two a day.

Keep smiling,

Oats, almond and dates granola bars

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,
One more recipe followed from DEEBA'S blog.
Again the same problem of not getting few ingredients here. I think there is a plus point in that also. That brings more creativity in me.
The other day Suma Rowjee posted the recipe(.Eggless Chocolate Chip Oat & Whole Wheat Snack Bar..) which she has followed it from Deeba (recipe here) and Deeba has followed it from Megan(here) and everyone with their alterations.
I thought of combining all the ideas and creating my own granola bars :-)))), and hey it was a success, I could not stop munching these lovely bars. My younger daughter was so happy to have it, and I was satisfied of giving her some thing healthy. And I never never imagined even in my dream  that I will bake some bars like these...
And the best part of these bars is its made of wheat and oats added to it are almonds and dates. What a perfect breakfast with a glass of milk to start your day. It really keeps you energetic the whole day.
SO THANKS TO ALL THE LADIES FOR GIVING ME THIS WONDERFUL RECIPE.
Please click the above links for their original recipes,


Coming to my version:
Dry Ingredients:
Oats - 1 1/2 cups(I used Saffola Oats)
Whole Wheat Flour - 3/4 cup
Baking Soda - 1/2 tsp
Flaked almonds - 1/2 cup
Diced fresh dates - 1/4 cup

Wet Ingredients:
Granulated Sugar - 1/4 cup
Brown or Demerara sugar - 1/4 cup
Oil - 1/4 cup
Milk - 2 tbsp
Corn flour - 2 tbsp
Warm water - 2tbsp
Vanilla extract or essence - 1 tsp

for the coating :
Nutella spread 
and toasted flaked almonds




Method:
Pre heat the oven at 180c
Grease and line a 7x11x2 inch tin with baking parchment leaving an overhang.
Take all the dry ingredients in a bowl and whisk. Keep aside.
Mix the warm water and cornflour in a bowl and keep it aside.
In a large bowl, add milk, oil, sugar and vanilla. Beat till the sugar is dissolved (it may take 3 to 4 minutes)
Add the cornflour mix. Beat again for a minute. 
Fold in the dry ingredients and mix well. The mixture will be very thick.
Spread it in a tin and level it.  
First time I baked it at 180 c for 30 minutes.
I removed and kept it to cool, but still the bars were soft.
So I cut it into bars and again baked at 200 c for 10 more minutes. And there I got crispy granola bars.
I used Nutella spread  and some flaked almonds to top it with. (I did not had dark chocolate).


My daughters enjoyed these bars.
You can store these crispy bars in an airtight box for a week or so.
