Atta Ladoos

I had previously mentioned the visit of my close friend R. We landed up yapping till 4 in the morning.. And to our utter surprise, a large portion of our discussion was on food!! Yummy discussions indeed.. R remembers me as a single working woman who was completely calorie conscious! She had no clue that I had even taken interest in cooking. She was surprised to see this transformed friend and was more than glad to share her cooking secrets with me.

This atta ladoo is a direct bi-product of those lovely late night talks. About making these ladoos, all I can say is, they are easier to make than blogging how to make them! So simple, yet so tasty and nutritious! This made a quick evening prasadam during Navarathri.

Ingredients (makes 7 ladoos)

  • 1/2 cup wheat flour / atta
  • 1/2 cup grated jaggery or a little less if you prefer it little less sweety
  • 1/4 tsp cardamom powder
  • 1 - 2 tbsp ghee
  • 1 - 2 tbsp cashews and raisins
Method of preparation:

  • Take a kadai. Dry roast the atta till a heavenly aroma arises. Empty the roasted atta in a fairly large bowl
  • Add the grated jaggery to it
  • In the same kadai, heat ghee
  • Fry the broken cashews and raisins till they become golden brown
  • Pour the ghee over the atta
  • Add the cardamom powder
  • Mix well and make ladoos
  • If making the ladoos becomes a trouble (in most cases it wont), just heat a little ghee and pour over the mixture
  • Yummy ladoos are ready in ten minutes flat!
