Do you know that 100 grams of garden cress seeds offers 100 mg of iron? Who would have thought that this tiny seed is a goldmine of iron!

Halim Ladoo is a traditional Maharashtrian sweet made with iron-rich garden cress seeds. Other ingredients like jaggery and almonds also add to the iron quotient of these delicious ladoos.

In this healthy version, we have even reduced the amount of coconut used to minimize the intake of saturated fats.
