Dates - Almond Laddu


These are absolutely my favorite and I can't stop popping them if they are around me. Apart for neivedyam, I prepare them for quick snacking. I should say these are my kind of laddus - quick and simple. It is "no cook" version and done under a couple of minutes. Also there is no particular recipe to follow. Dates and almonds can be used in whatever proportion one prefers. If preferred, jaggery and cardamom can be added as well.

Ingredients: (Makes about 8)
1 cup pitted dates (about 20)
3/4 cup almond meal (or grind almonds)
1/4 cup sweetened coconut flakes (optional)


Method:
Pulse all the ingredients together in a food processor until a coarse mixture is formed. Divide the mixture into 8 equal portions and shape them into laddus.
