Tips/Tricks

  • Do opt for softer dates. I used Lion desert King dates.
  • You shall serve it as Laddoos skipping toothpicks.
  • You shall add Pistachios too.
  • You shall oven-fry cashews and almonds before grinding.
  • Recommended: Use blanched almonds. Or soak almonds overnight(or 1 hour in warm water), remove the skin, pat dry and dry roast for few mins. It is always wise to skip the skin of Almonds to aid proper digestion and also to help fully absorb the richest nutrients present in it.
