Its a very rich ladoo to be eaten during pregnancy.
I did eat this ladoo during my pregnancy but sorry I do not know the recipe. As my mom made it for me
The recipe is very much same as mentioned by simmy. I add a few more dry fruits like pistachios and walnuts. I also add pumpkin and melon seeds (known as magaz).
The ladoo seems to be very healthy. Can anyone who is not feeding eat this or just meant for breast feeding moms.
This is a great recipe for making dry fruit ladoo for all breast feeding mothers. This Indian recipe has all the nutrients that go into nourishing the mother as well as the child. This is a very valuable bit of information for all mothers and moms to be across the nations. The preparation is simple too and brings in all the goodies!
