As the festive season approaches, our thoughts naturally turn to the joy of celebration, and a quintessential part of these festivities is the indulgence in sweet delicacies. Be it the luminous aura of Dussehra or Diwali, no festive occasion is quite complete without a platter of delights like Kaju Katli, Soan Papdi or Motichur laddoo. Yet, the temptation to overindulge in these sugary treats often comes with a pang of guilt.

But who said you must sacrifice the decadence of sweets in the name of well-being? The answer lies in creating a healthier version of these cherished treats, allowing you to enjoy them guilt-free while basking in the spirit of the season. While some may count calories meticulously, Bangalore-based nutritionist Dr. Nikita Suresh recommends a different approach to enjoying these traditional delights, she says, “you don't have to curb your cravings completely. You can enjoy these scrumptious sweet delicacies by making them at home with  healthier ingredients.”


Dry fruit laddoos are the perfect solution to satisfy your festive cravings. They offer a mild sweetness, making them an excellent choice for those who are health-conscious. Dr. Nikita has altered the nuts into a more delightful treat by selecting ingredients that are both low in calories and still capable of benefiting your sweet cravings.
