Gond ke laddoo is one of my favourites festive sweet. Prepared with ease and nutritious too. This is my entry for E-book on diwali sweets on Indus 
edible gum ladoo recipe | indian sweet recipe | healthy recipe
Ingredients required for this recipe are:
Edible gum powder: 1 cup (first deep  fry  gond ,  they will puffed up and grind to fine powder if there are hard particles in it sieve it with strainer, to avoid frying microwave them on high for one minute. Grease turn table with ghee and then place gum pieces on it and microwave them, remove them immediately from oven. I use the microwave method for puffing gum.
Sooji or semolina: ½ cup
Ghee: 3 table spoons
Green cardamom : 6 nos(crushed)
Mixed dry fruits: raisins, cashewnuts, pistachoes
Dry coconut grated: ½ cup
Poppy seeds: 1 tbspn.
Sugar : 1 & half; ½ cup ( you can use powdered but I like whole one)
Method: In a heavy bottomed pan heat ghee add crushed cardamoms, as aroma arises add poppy seeds and semolina roast on medium heat stirring continiously till semolina is light brown in color and well roasted. This will take approx 8-to minutes Add mixed dry fruits and coconut mixwell cook for a minute as raw smell of coconut is removed and dryfruits are slighthly roasted. Add gum powder & sugar mix well cook for ½ minute, remove the pan from flame. Let it cool for 5-6 minutes as mixture is easy to handle with hands, make laddoos of desired size.
Note: if mixture is dry to shape them in laddoo you can sprinkle few drops of milk in it to incorporate moisture in mixture.
