Is Halim Ladoo healthy?

This is not the healthiest ladoo. Made from halim, jaggery, semolina, almonds and ghee. 

Let's understand the Ingredients.

What's good.

Halim : This is a super source of Iron. Highly recommended to have this daily. 

Almonds (badam) Almonds are rich in B complex vitamins such as Vitamin B1, ThiamineVitamin B3, Niacin and Folate which plays an important role in the brain development. Almonds balances your cholesterol levels. almonds have a very low glycemic index and good for diabetics. See all 13 super health benefits of almonds

What's the problem?

Rava (semolina, sooji) :  What's good? Semolina is a fairly good source of Magnesium and phosphorus which is necessary to keep our nervous system healthy and working. What's the issue? Fibre is one key nutrient for weight loss and semolina is devoid of it. Semolina is not suitable for diabetics. For details read is sooji healthy?

Jaggery (Gur) : When compared to sugar, which provides only empty calories, jaggery is considered to be a superior natural sweetener. Sugar is definitely one of the causes of many chronic diseases, but jaggery too needs to be consumed in moderate amounts. What you would consume is just about a tbsp (18 g) or a tsp (6 g). While those with heart diseases and weight loss can have a dessert made with this quantity of jaggery occasionally as an option to refined sugar, but diabetics need to avoid this sweetener too as it can spike blood sugar levels instantly. Read is jaggery healthy for complete details.  

Can diabetics, heart patients and over weight individuals have Halim Ladoo ?

For diabetics, the answer is no. Same goes for weight loss and healthy heart. The issue is usage of rava which has  no fibre and too much of jaggery used.
