This is my first post for 2018,and i thought to start with a recipe sweet and healthy..!

This is a laddu ,made with ingredients full of protein and other impressive nutrients.The

dried  palmyra tuber or the odiyal (mostly found in Srilanka) is also used in this recipe.

A quick peek into the benefits of black rice .Black rice ,though known to be in existence

thousands of years ago,and mostly consumed by the Chinese royalty ,the spark of healthy

and organic food search has now unraveled the benefits of the black rice.

To point a few benefits…full of antioxidants,good for detoxification,good for heart

diabetes ,and obesity.Not forgetting the palmyrah tuber or odiyal ,which also contains

calcium,iron ….and many nutrients.

You can make this laddu for those who do not like to have black rice…a healthy cheat

treat.So…now for the recipe.
