Boondi Ladoo


Ladoo is the most famous sweet in India. Boondi Ladoo is also the most popular dessert, that we distribute for thanksgiving. Boondi laddu is like golden pearls of gram flour cooked in pure desi ghee, with cashews and raisins, shaped into round dessert balls. Celebration means ladoo and Boondi Laddu is a delicious Indian sweet made for special occasions. This is also the most popular sweet among the Hindu Gods. You will never find lord Ganesha idol without Laddo in his hand. We also worship Ganesha before starting any auspicious activity. Thus, Ladoo also becomes an integral recipe in any auspicious ceremonies. Enjoy Diwali with your favorite sweet made at home!
