Ladoo was my first sweet which I tried out on my 7th grade annual school holidays......I myself was very much surprised to see the outcome.... my family members appreciated me it inspired me to try more dishes ........ That was my first step in making sweets......I tried it with one cup of flour when my mum was having a nap in mum had orange color [kesari] powder so my ladoos were in orange color which was looking odd for those days [Now we can see some sweet stalls selling orange ladoos]...My cousin brother makes fun of me even now when we get to see other.........
