Ladoo – the name itself is very tempting to me or any sweet for that matter. We do not have much options to get sweets here. Especially Motichoor Ladoo is very difficult. Chotu is a big fan of Motichoor Ladoo and it all started last year when we were on a vacation to India. He got attracted to these ladoos after watching Chota Bheem cartoon on TV.
