A Guide To Making Dink Ladoos At Home!

by Simran Kashyap on Jun 7, 2022 Food and Drink 47 Views

If you're wondering how to make the delicious Dink Ladoo at home, you're about to find out what I learned from the absolute best - my Aaji! I vividly remember Aaji humming a tune and making these tasty treats every winter. These sweet little balls of flavours and textures are like no other and are also referred to as Gond Ladoos - one of the most famous Indian sweets. There's a reason why Aaji would make these for us every winter - these are high on nutrition and also keep the body warm on chilly days. So, without further ado, let’s hop directly to the ingredients and the simple steps involved in preparing Dink Ladoos at home! 




100 Grams of Dink or Edible Gum

4 teaspoons of Ghee

100 Grams of Cashew nuts

¾ teaspoon of Nutmeg powder

500 Grams of Dry coconut

¾ teaspoon of Green Cardamom. Crushed and powdered.

250 Grams of Sugar

250 Grams of Dry dates




Excited to get started? Here are a few super-simple steps to get your Dink Ladoo ready in no time! 


Step1: Getting ready with the ingredients


Begin by grating the coconut. Take 3-4 tablespoons of sugar, grind it well, and put it aside. Once done, powder some dry dates. 


Step 2: Frying the Gum


Heat the pan for a while. Add the grated coconut to the pan and cook it under medium or low flame until the colour of the coconut changes from white to light brown. Once it's done, put the fried coconut in a bowl. Add a tablespoon of ghee and two tablespoons of gum to the pan. Once the gum puts off, you can take it out with your spatula. Continue this for two or three tablespoons of gum each. Next, set it aside and cool it. Add the fried gum to the powdered dates and mix it well. 


Step 3: Mix the dough


Mix the powdered sugar, cardamom powder, nutmeg powder, and ghee with the coarse edible gum powder and fried grated coconut in a mixing bowl. Keep it aside after thoroughly mixing it. Please note that the dough should be mixed properly before proceeding to the next step. 


Step 4: Make the sugar syrup


In a pan, melt the remaining sugar. Pour in enough water, around one and a half cups. Bring everything to a boil over low to medium heat. To check the texture and consistency of the syrup, you can drop a few drops into cold water. If it forms a crystal, your syrup has got the right consistency. 


Step 5: Final Mix and Making


Mix the dough and sugar syrup well. Don't add all the syrup in one go; add half of it and give it a good mix. Then you can add the remaining if required. Follow this step by adding some cashew nuts and set aside to cool. Lastly, when the dough is cool enough to touch, make a small dough the size of a lemon. 


Wrapping Up! 

While making these ladoos at home is simple, we understand that not everyone has the time. At the same time, the ones available in the supermarket can never level up to the ones your Aaji would make. Nevertheless, Aazol's Dink Ladoos are sweet balls of flavours and textures - like no other! Do let us know how the dish turned out in the comment section.
