Kaju, Kesar and Mawa Ladoo / Ladu - Creamy Cashew and Saffron Truffles

These Kaju, Kesar and Mawa Ladoo are just simply divine and heavenly, a little nutty but melts in your mouth. These come together in 30 minutes with a handful of ingredients. 

In this recipe cashew powder and khoya infused with saffron to make the sumptuous treat fitting for any festivities. Love cashews and Indian sweets? this one is for you!




I am sure once you will offer as Prasad to Ganpati Bappa, everyone's eyes will be eyeing these elegant and rich-looking ladoos.




Now that Ganesh Chaturthi is just round the corner, all ardent devotees of 'Bappa' are waiting enthusiastically to celebrate Ganeshutsav with great fanfare in India and around the world. To celebrate or offer religious prayers you don't have to be from one particular region or religion and to complete the religious ceremony ( Ganesh Pooja ) many are already in search for different sweets for Prasad or naivedhyam.



Traditionally, various kind of Modak and Ladoos are offered to Lord Ganesha, but this year I decided to change it up and made these Kaju, Kesar and Mawa ladoo instead.
