Of Flavours & Tastes…
I thought of posting something sweet today.Badaam Laddu was a natural choice since it ensures my little one is helped nutritionally even while having a sweet.Takes away my guilt you know.
This recipe is from Nita Mehta who described it as a ”very popular Punjabi dessert ,made on all happy occasions”.Very simple and easy to prepare at home,it’s a wonderful dessert is my verdict for you.Do try!
