Pumpkin Seeds Ladoo

Pumpkin seeds ladoo: A melt in mouth ladoo made with pumpkin seeds and dried fruits.No Indian desserts are complete without our very own ladoos,right? So if I am posting sweet recipes there have to be ladoo in there.

I made these ladoos with a combination of pumpkin seeds wheat flour, semolina and lots of dried fruits.Well, there is ghee so it is not totally guilt free but we can skip eating healthy a few times.After all, desserts don’t have to be healthy 😉
