Have you ever planned for a dish A and ended up doing Dish B? This dry fruits ladoo is one such experience of mine. I wanted to make a filling for my sandwich with dry fruits,but some how I ended up with a ladoo and in no time they were all over. My sister in law once mentioned that they carry these during mountaineering and trekking as it is extremely nutritious /filling and preparation is hyper-quick. You can prepare this for your snack for your toddlers/pre schoolers or as an immediate option for your guests.
