Bread Laddu

My son gets bored of the evening snacks very soon. So I try to prepare something different and colourful. Like many other kids, its difficult to get "I liked it" signal from him :). So I have to "invent" some quick snacks which I know most of you are also doing.Initially I used to make this laddus with bread, sugar and coconut. I used to make tiny balls so that its easy for him to eat and when my hubby asked me what is the name of the dish, I thought and I named it Bread Laddu :). My kid just loved it. Yesterday I made it by adding grated carrots , dates and  raisins, even my hubby liked it too.This is a quick snack which the kids will surely love. No cooking needed.....mix everything and make laddus in few  minutes.

Bread Laddu




Ingredients:

4 Bread slices
1/2 cup grated Carrots
1/2 cup Coconut
1/4 cup Sugar (Add sugar according to your taste)
2-3 tbsp chopped Dates and Raisins
Honey (optional)


Cut the brown edges of the bread. I used frozen coconut. So I thawed it by keeping in microwave for about 30 seconds. Kids may not like the taste of the raw carrots. So I slightly cooked them in microwave for about 45 seconds to 1 minute.

Take each bread slice and make small pieces by hand. Put them in a bowl. Add the carrots, coconut, sugar, dates and raisins. Mix everything well. The moistness of the coconut and carrots will help to form something like a dough. Now make small balls out of it. Your sweet delicious laddu is ready. Drizzle some honey on top.

Makes about 7-8 medium size laddus





 Notes:
*You can add chopped nuts too.
*You can try making this using jaggery instead of sugar.
*If you use sweet bread, it will be much better.
