Dates Ladoo | Khajur ke Ladoo | Kharjura Unde

This one is quick sweet recipe.  Dates are very sweet and also good for health. We can eat it just like that, both the dried & ripe ones. These are also used for sweets / desserts.  Since everyone knows about these I will directly head to the recipe. This ladoo recipe is from my cousin's wife (Roopa). She tried this and told me about the recipe. I felt it was an interesting sweet dish. I made it and it came out very nice. The sweetness also mostly comes from the Dates itself.  I also added different coatings for this ladoo.
Check the recipe below. 

Sending this to event called Taste of Tropics guest hosted by Citrusspiceuk and Chef Mireille
