‘Methi ke laddu’ is a type of health laddu especially made during winters. It’s made with a combination of fenugreek (methi) seed powder, whole wheat flour (atta), tragacanth gum (gond katira), almonds (badam), jaggery (gul), dry ginger powder (soonth), peepramul (ganthoda) and ghee.

So basically it contains all the healthy ingredients which are nutritionally high and winter supportive. Have one laddu in the morning and you are done with your winter tonic for the day!!!

How to make it? The best person to help you with the recipe and the process would be your Dadi/Nani/Paati/Mommy. I just recently learnt it from my Mom. Delicious (with a dash of bitterness), healthy (to the core) and trust me, it’s worth it!!!

The Winter Toffee
29 November 2017
The Winter Toffee –  KAMARKATTU, a traditional Tamil Nadu sweet is the best alternative for anyone who has a sweet tooth. It melts slowly in the mouth improving the secretion of saliva and is amazing to taste. If you stay in Tamil Nadu or have visited here anytime, be sure to find this wonderful healthy sweet anywhere right from a Pottikadai (small-scale neighbourhood shops) to any national supermarket, all-round the year. It can also be made easily at home. Made with a combination of Coconut, Jaggery & Ghee, it is extremely therapeutic for the winters as they provide healthy fat to keep the joints lubricated and protect the skin from drying. Additionally, Coconut – (there have been a lot of myths around coconut but researches have proved that ) coconut is a super food that improves brain function – skin health – helps burn fat – kills harmful microorganisms – improves blood cholesterol levels. Jaggery - loaded with antioxidants & minerals which prevent free radicals - helps boost resistance against infections - builds stronger immunity – aids digestion – acts as a detox – in adolescent girls combats PMS symptoms including mood swings, menstrual cramps & abdominal pain. Ghee – another misinterpreted food is actually anti-inflammatory – anti-cancerous - rich in fat soluble vitamins – increases good cholesterol - strengthens immune system – helps burn fat – keeps brain sharp – skin lustrous. P.S - All the mothers, stock them at home and you’ll never get anxious when your child demands for a toffee. Isn’t that a win-win?
