Imli Ladoos (Tamarind Balls)

Time to take a trip down the memory lane...time to travel to childhood days again with this tangy, sweet & addictive imli bombs!!! Taste awesome, though turned a little hard! Nevertheless I am in love with these imli ladoos again!



These were my favorite munching sweet 'n savory treats as a child. What about you?

Another oil-free recipe. Yes, this looks more like bread pakoda and tastes the same as well. But this recipe does not use bread, nor does it use oil.

a pinch of baking soda
a tablespoon of oil (if you wish; I used it)
a tbs of sesame seeds (you can increase or reduce the quantity)
salt - as per taste
