Navratri marks the beginning of the festive season in most Indian homes, that lasts almost till the year ends. Whether you are the kind who’d celebrate festivals with all the jazz or keep it low key, the one thing you cannot ignore for the next few months is sweets!
Over a period of time, Traditional sweets have been replaced with fancy chocolates, rich deserts, and artificial mithais. Most sweets that we buy from the local stores are extraordinarily sweet and lack the true flavour. So when I heard of Wandering Foodie that offer healthy laddoos made with traditional recipes and pure ghee I was excited to try them out.

Healthy, Tasty Laddoos By Wandering Foodie
Speaking of festivals and sweets, Wandering Foodie offers laddoos made with pure desi ghee and top-notch quality dry fruits.
These laddoos bring the culinary treasures of different regions to you in one pack.
The laddoos are free of preservatives or any kind of artificial sweetener and flavours. The sugar content is controlled and balanced. Infact a few of the recipes use jaggery instead of sugar making the laddoos even more healthy.
A box of assorted laddoos By Wandering Foodie contained four different types of laddoos from different parts of the nation.
Besan Ladoo – chickpea flour and sugar laddoos with dry fruits
Daraba Ladoo – Wheat Laddoos from Khandesh in Maharashtra
Nachni Ladoo – Ragi Laddoos from Konkan
Sattu Ladoo – Sattu and Jaggery laddoos from Bihar
when I first opened the box I was super impressed with the individual packaging. Each laddoo was neatly packed in a separate round plastic box. The most annoying bit of buying laddoos from the local store is that by the time you get them home they are stuck to each other or crumbled. The individual packing keeps each laddoo packed until it’s eaten, and also saves the mess. Every laddoo also has a small name tag making it easier to distinguish the types.
Each of the four types of laddoos have their own rich flavour. Besan laddoos have been my favourite since I was a little girl, and I almost gobbled one everyday out of the box. My next favourite are the daraba laddoos made out of wheat. The sattu laddoos are made of jaggery and have a peculiar native taste. The nachani laddoos are extremely healthy, getting the kids to eat nachani is otherwise not easy. But when offered in form of laddoos, they are going to love it too.
