Healthy Nutty Laddu/ Laadu / Unde

 Healthy Nutty Laddu is one of the healthy sweet that name it  self says " Healthy" . Nuts are always nutritious.and helpful provider of vitamins and minerals.

When it is said Nuts my mind tries to remember of my childhood days at My doddamma House. When I was about 1 and half year old my doddamma took me to her house to Udyavar. She is my mother's sister who had no children of her own. It is not that she did not get her pregnancy. When she was in her early pregnancy her mother in law made her to work very hard and because of that she lost her pregnancy. It happened twice and then she could not concive she used to say. So sad to hear that. I have seen her mother in law who was very rude and she made my doodamma to suffer so much. 

In those days all these nuts were used by rich people and not many could buy as they think.

But my doddamma used to give me some raisins every day, hiding raisins in her sari edge. She used to take me behind the cow shed and feed me those raisins. Raisins are very good for health and good for good blood as every one knows. Her mother in law will shout out if she sees that. She took care of me like her own baby until she died. Even our wedding beegara authana held in Udyavara Mane. Even now I am attached to that house. My younger sister lives there and we visit whenever we visit our home town. Its like my mother's home for me
