Is it not my favorite part of the year or what! I want to introduce Wandering Foodie! Your festival season is sorted with this box of goodness. Let me tell you how!
What does Festivities mean to you? For me, it means Family and Food and tons of sweets! Is it not the same for everyone?
After wrapping up Garba nights, we are already looking forward to Diwali! The one thing constant in all the festivities, even if you say no to new clothes, or new something else, you never say NO to SWEETS. From Prasad, to gifts, sweets make an integral part of our festivals. And what can be better than, handmade, preservative – free, healthy but traditional laddoos, all at your doorstep? Yep, you grab it with both hands and gobble it down. At least that’s what My Little Laddoos and the Big laddoo in my Home did when we received our box of goodness from Wandering Foodies!
Who IS Wandering Foodie, by the way?
Wandering Foodie promotes regional Indian cuisines and help each region create a distinct food identity. While ‘Indian Food’ is an all encompassing term, the sheer diversity in cultures in different parts of the country makes it mandatory to identify and respect each food culture separately.
Wandering Foodie explores and bring forth all the wonderful food offerings of India, already famous or yet hidden, in the most authentic way possible.
Wandering Foodie – the exciting Range of Ladoos
- A box of assorted Ladoos. This box has 4 types of Ladoos and thus makes a great option for gifting.
Assorted Ladoos (4 each): Daraba (wheat) ladoo, Sattu Ladoo, Nachni (Ragi) Ladoo & Besan Ladoo with dry fruit garnishing!
Sattu is a flour made from sand-roasted chickpeas (Bengal gram). It is an ancient, beloved ingredient of the Bihari cuisine, and has been used in earlier times as travel food and even soldiers’ food during wars as a reliable source of energy! It is an incredible source of protein and is also used for body building. ( info – Wandering Foodie). Sattu is different from besan. While both are derived from the same pulse, the procedure is different and so is the taste. Sattu is lighter and easier to digest than besan, and hence is ideal for ready-to-eat products.
Nachni (Ragi) Ladoo –
Nachni and Ragi is known as super food in India. And its use is prevalant in Maharashtra and Karnataka. So making them into ladoos is prominent in Konkan as travel food due to its nutritious value and long life. Wandering Foodie has made these ladoos superior by using sprouted ragi flour in their preparation!
Daraba Ladoo – Khandesh
This was our absolute favorite! My kids gobbled this up and the Husband dear also announced this as his favorite. Made of only four ingredients (wheat, desi ghee, sugar and cardamom), this ladoo is sure to steal your heart with its melt-in-mouth texture and subtle flavours. I know we will be getting this particular box for us this Diwali, and gifting a few others.
