Halim Laddoo is a traditional Maharashtrian sweet made with iron-rich garden cress seeds. Other ingredients like jaggery and almonds also add to the iron quotient of these delicious laddoos. In this healthy version, the reduced amount of coconut is used to minimize the intake of saturated fats so as to make it more nutritious.

Dry coconut can also be added to make a new variation.

 3. Add the coconut and almonds and mix well.

 4. Transfer the mixture onto a plate and keep aside to cool slightly.

 5. Divide the mixture into 4 equal portions and shape each portion into a round ball.
