Less ingredients and less fuss. This is what going to be the theme of my posts this week and they are all going to be based on four ingredients. Cooking with few ingredients automatically implies that less time and less work are involved in the process. These delicious date and nut based laddus here are a fine example for it.
1 cup soft, pitted dates
1/2 cup walnuts or almonds
1/4 cup sweetened coconut flakes
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
* Process walnuts / almonds into coarse crumbs and keep them aside.
* Finely chop the dates and also run them through food processor. There is no need to make them mush. Now add the coconut flakes, nut crumbs and cinnamon and pulse them a few times until the mixture comes together.
Alternately, the coconut flakes can be left out while pulsing the mixture and later the laddus can be rolled in the coconut flakes instead.
* Transfer the mixture onto a plate and shape them into lime sized balls.
These laddus are going to be a part of the Blogging marathon #69. Check the link to find out what the other marathoners are cooking.
