Antinunde (edible Gum Ladoo)

Breast feeding mothers need extra calories. To increase nutrition and calorific value of the mother’s meal as well as making sure that the food contains no potential irritants is an ordeal in itself.
Antinunde is one such dish from Karnataka. Consuming this rich food is supposed to strengthen back, aid recovery as well as help augment milk supply.
I vouch of the potency of the food myself.It is simple to make and delicious to consume. It is also given to children when they attain puberty.
Believed to build strong bones and increase blood circulation, these laddoos are yummy treat for children at any age.

In this modern age when our kids are prone to fast foods, this simple recipe adds to the missing nutrition's that they require. These laddoos can be preserved for 15-20days and consumed at any part of the day.
