Ladoo or laddu is one of the popular sweets prepared during festivals in India. Earlier I had prepared rava ladoo and coconut meva ladoo.Today I have prepared these nutty whole wheat ladoos , where I have used powdered cashew nuts mixed with whole wheat atta(flour) to give it more taste.This recipe is simple and quick. So let’s start with it.
- 1 1/2 Cup(200 Grams)Whole wheat flour
- 1/3 Cup(43 Grams) Cashew Nuts
- 3/4 Cup (150 Grams)White Granulated Sugar
- 1/2 Cup(115 Grams) Ghee/Clarified Butter( I used home made ghee )
- 1 Teaspoon cardamom powder
Dry roast cashew nuts on a skillet on medium flame for 2-3 minutes. Remove and keep for cooling.
Once cools down, grind it to fine powder.
On the same skillet, dry roast flour on low flame till it changes color . Don’t burn it. This will take 5-10 minutes.
Once you get nice aroma of roasted flour, switch off the stove and keep aside till it cools down completely.
Add sugar, cardamom powder and cashew nuts powder in the flour and mix well.
Microwave ghee for 3-4 minutes or until it is very smoky hot.
Pour over the flour mixture and mix well.
Grease your palm with some ghee.
When the mixture is still warm, make ladoos by taking a golf ball size mixture on your palm and give it round ball shape.
Repeat for all.
Once the ladoos cool down completely, store them in the airtight container.
Enjoy the festival with these delicious and healthy ladoos.
