Shweta Rana - Author of the recipe
Here’s a yummy khajoor ladoo recipe from a fellow mom, Shweta. She says she would feed her son, Shantanu, a small ladoo every evening during winters. Shweta started giving these ladoos to Shantanu after he turned 10 months old. Dates are easy for digestion and provide us instant energy as they contain simple sugars. So I can’t wait to try this out for Devansh. Hope you all enjoy this recipe as well.

  • 1 cup deseeded and finely chopped khajoor (dates)
  • 1 tbsp homemade ghee (clarified butter)
  • 2 tbsp sooji (semolina)
  • Pinch of elaichi (cardamom) powder
  1. Heat a kadhai and add 1/4th of the ghee. 
  2. Add sooji and roast it on low flame till it turns light brown. (Ghee heats up pretty fast so add the sooji immediately after you add ghee to the kadhai.)
  3. Add elaichi powder to the sooji and stir properly.
  4. Turn off heat and set aside roasted sooji. 
  5. Heat remaining ghee in a non-stick kadhai. 
  6. Add chopped khajoor and stir till the khajoor become soft and mushy.
  7. Now add roasted sooji. For toodlers, you can add powdered and roasted cashewnuts, sesame seeds and almonds to the mixture.
  8. Stir continuously till the mixture leaves the sides of kadhai.
  9. Allow the mixture to cool slightly and then mould it into small ladoos. Refrigerate the ladoos in an airtight container.

Currently I am a full-time mom looking after my adorable little angel—well on most days my son is that :-). I was working as an instructional designer before Devansh was born. I decided to put my career on hold till he turns two at least. When I had to introduce solid food in his diet I collated a lot of baby food recipes. That’s when my husband, who’s an avid blogger for quite a few years, suggested I start a blog with these recipes. I thought why not, after all even this is like writing e-learning content, lots of procedural content with steps n all :-). But then the real challenge began—motivating yourself to write when there’s no client breathing down your neck with unrealistic deadlines. I had my excuses ready—I am too busy changing nappies, cooking, feeding… I don’t get enough sleep at night as Devansh wakes up several times during his sleep so how can I concentrate on writing etc etc. Now that Devansh is 20 months old I can no longer use some of these excuses. So FINALLY I have started writing these recipes. I have a few recipes that are written but are not photographed and some that are photographed but not written. I plan to post them real soon. Let’s see how it goes. :-)
