Ladoo

 Diwali is fast approaching. Decided what sweet you are going to make? Well my all time favorite is ladoo. I have mentioned before also I like sweets a lot, in fact my family loves it a lot. Since I don’t get Kerala style ladoo here I decided it to give it a try. I always had a perception that it was difficult to make ladoo. But believe me its easy and the happiness that you get after making it is priceless.
