An outstanding, fantastic and irresistible sweet. I loved it too much as it is a unique variation of ladoo. The only thing is that it requires a lot of ghee .

Excellently balanced flavors... the aroma that filled my kitchen while making it was unbelievable... the roasted nachni flour and the poppy seeds add a great crunch to the ladoos... was quick to make and well to finish too...
