Another traditional recipe for Winter. Dink means edible gum crystals. Ladoo of this with coconut and lots of ghee and dry fruits are very healthy and specially prepared in winter. Old people used to eat this ladoo in winter because it generates heat and strength in body. Dinkache ladoo are traditionally given to ladies after their delivery to strengthen the body. Ladoos in this picture also prepared by My Bhabhi, Sapna's Mother after Sapna's delivery.
Dink/antu (gum/resin) - 2 tablespoons
Grated dry coconut - 1/2 cup
Finley Chopped cashew - 2 tablespoons
Finley Chopped almonds- 2 tablespoons
Finley Chopped kharik (dry dates)- 2 tablespoons
Finley Chopped walnuts- 2 tablespoons
Raisins - 1 tablespoon
Poppy seeds - 2 tablespoons
Cardamom powder - 1/4 teaspoon
Nutmeg powder - 1/4 teaspoon
Jaggery - 1 cup
Pure ghee (preferably homemade) - 2 tablespoon
Heat a ghee in a kadai and put dink in it. Slowly it will start puffing like small balls. When all the dink got puffed remove it from kadai but keep the ghee as it is in kadai. Now fry all dry fruits one by one in ghee till it turns to slightly brown. Then fry poppy seeds and dry coconut. Crush fried dink little. Mix all fried ingredients. Now take 1/2 cup of water and bring it to boil. Add jaggery and make a thick syrup of it. (When we put a drop of syrup in water it should sit like a ball, then the syrup is done.) Now add all fried ingredient's mixture and cardamom and nutmeg powder in syrup and mix wel. Apply ghee on your palm and make ladoos when the mixture is warm. Store it in a container. If you want to get feel of eating just done ladoos after 10-15 days, just microwave it for 10-15 seconds….ladoos will taste more yummy.
