Looking to make some tasty foods using dates?, then you should try this. Dates are rich in Iron and they also provide a wide range of essential nutrients, and are a very good source of dietary potassium. The sugar content of ripe dates is about 80% and the remainder consists of protein, fiber, and trace elements. Similarly laddus are also a tasty and good south indian food. When you combine dates with Laddu’s the duo tastes better.
