What is Gond or Edible Gum

Gond or Edible gum is odorless, tasteless and a water-soluble mixture obtained from the sap of the plant and then dried. Since it is water-soluble it makes it easy to mix with a range of ingredients. The gum is considered a source of the powerhouse and is great for boosting immunity, stamina, and health. 


How do you eat Edible Gum

Edible gum is fried and added to recipes. Frying helps them puff up. One can then add it as is or slightly crush them. One of the most popular uses in India is to make nourishing ladoos that are consumed by lactating women and those recovering from illness. They are mainly made in winters to provide those extra calories needed in winter and also to provide warmth to your body.


Gond ke Ladoo for New Mothers

These ladoos are believed to speed up recovery and provide vital nutrients and extra calories required for a new mother. As they are rich in essential fats and calories it helps a new mother to regain her strength after delivering a child. 


As a kid, I never enjoyed these ladoos, but I eat them after my elder one’s birth, and I loved started loving these beauties. My son loves them and I do make it every winter for him. I even make this Sugarless Ragi Ladoos a favourite in my family.

Some Old memories

Winters are here and we had a good Christmas break. Kid’s at home definitely calls for snacks and food. So I finally thought of making my mom’s Aate aur Gond ke ladoo. I told my son, I am making Nani’s ladoo and he was overwhelmed. My 2-year-old couldn’t understand much, except she said mumma is making snowballs 😀  :D. Anyways coming back to Ladoo’s.


Recipe Process of Atte aur Gond ke Ladoo

The recipe is simple and needs a few ingredients that are available at home. The key to making these ladoos is the roasting of the whole wheat flour. The flour needs to be cooked thoroughly along with ghee. This needs time and patience but the end result is worth it. You keep on cooking the flour until it releases a nice aroma or you find it changing color or you see the ghee starts leaving the edges. On a slow stove, it will take around 20-30 minutes for around 2 Cups of flour. You can always multitask this along with your other kitchen stuff.


Either shallow fry the gond earlier or later it’s up to you. I do it earlier as I like to use the same ghee to then roast the flour. After the flour and gond is done, you just switch it off and let the mixture cool.


The sugar is added when the mixture is cooled completely. If you add sugar to a hot mixture it will melt and you would not be able to bind the ladoos. Cardamom powder is added for flavour and almonds for extra nutrition and crunch. All in all, 1 ladoo a day is good for you especially during the winter months.
