The series finale as they say or the last laddoo on the list is Peanut & Jaggery Laddoo or as we say in Marathi Shendanyache Ladu 

This was super hectic and great fun because I was cooking and clicking and posting on same day.

Benefits of Peanut & Jaggery :
  1. Jaggery is loaded with antioxidants and minerals such as zinc and selenium.
  2. Jaggery provides resistance against infections. 
  3. Jaggery helps increase the total count of haemoglobin in the blood
  4. Peanuts are rich source of protein and vital vitamins
  5. It is excellent especially during fasting

Nutmeg is an interesting addition to laddu! Peanut laddu must taste amazing. Sometimes I eat peanuts with jaggery or brown sugar :)
