Per Bastet Publications always has a room party on Friday night at the Imaginarium convention. One of our partners is gluten intolerant, one of our friends is allergic to cashews and walnuts, and some of our friends are vegetarian, so everything I made was gluten-free and vegan, and most dishes were also nut-free.
The recipe for this called it ladoo, but real laddu is made with some kind of flour, and this isn’t. I got it from a YouTube video on a channel called Saatvik Rasoi. I followed the recipe for once. Mostly.
Apricot Coconut “Ladoo”
1 cup dried apricots
1 cup dessicated coconut (I used sweetened, but I think unsweetened might be better).
2 Tablespoons honey
1/2 teaspoon cardamom
Put everything into a blender and blend it. The end.
Well, yeah, you pinch off lumps of it and roll them between your palms into balls. I rolled some in coconut.
Then, as it says in the video, I made another batch and added some roughly chopped pistachios and rolled them in crushed pistachios.
I made four dishes, so this will last me for a month of Tuesday posts.
