hi trupti - this sounds like "uradiyo" that we make in gujarat. we make it especially in the winter months or if someone is expecting.

Dink ladoos look delicious. I ate them after my daughter was born. A must for a new mother. I like dinkache ladoo more than alivache ladoo or methi che ladoo - all recommended for new mothers! Gujaratis make similar but instead of ladoos they make vadya and are called "Gunder paak".

Hello Trupti,

My wife is a big fan of your Dinkache ladoo. will it be possible for you to make some for her ?

We will for all the cost/expenses ofcourse.

If it is possible, please get back to me at zagade@gmail.com

I like it & i am going to taste this ladoo. I have one question is it good for the people who workout in gym. Does it provide good nutrition and proteins.
