Today, after lunch, we were just sitting back and enjoying a movie, when suddenly my hubby expressed his desire to enjoy something sweet... I have been thinking about this laddu for a while and then, I thought, why not I try this one! After all, it would be a nice sunday sweet...

So I started with it right away...It took me 30 minutes and my husband loved it!!!
