Dates are considered energy giving and healing food , it heals the disturbances of intestines and is a mild but effective laxative .They are also considered a tonic food especially for heart weakness and as a convalescence food , boiling the dates with milk or even water makes it a easily digestible tonic food.

Fresh dates are sticky in texture and i sometimes use it as a natural sweetener and a binder for a sweetmeat preparation…….this laddoo is simple to make but it’s yummy if you like dates……… flax seeds and sesame have a nice nutty flavor and add to the taste of dates in this preparation toasted almonds can be powdered coarsely and added to this mixture if you do not like flax seeds and sesame …….

I have already put up flax seeds chutney powder, peanut flax seeds laddoo etc., But in peanut  flax seeds laddoo i have used jaggery but in this laddoo i have not used either sugar, jaggery or ghee and hence more healthier.  Here goes the recipe!!!

What you need to have:

1. Flax seeds – 3 tablespoons

2. Sesame seeds  3 tablespoons
