Aliv che laadu is a traditional Maharashtrian sweet made with iron and calcium rich Garden Cress seeds. It is a winter delicacy and is specially made for the new moms. The ladoos ( sweet balls) are made using jaggery , fresh coconut , dry fruits and garden cress seeds . These ladoos are very nutritious and provide warmth to the body. Though they are usually made for lactating mothers, people of all age can have this winter treats. The Halim seeds are soaked either in coconut water or milk for at least 1 hour before making the ladoos. There are many methods of making the halim ladoo. I am sharing my moms recipe which i relished when i was a new mom.
