Wheat Laddu


During festive seasons, say Sankranthi, Dasshera, Deepawali, we make so many sweet varieties to celebrate the occasion. These laddus are one such sweet enjoyment we make during festivals and of course on various happy occasions or just to enjoy too. There are so many other types of laddus such as, besan laddu, rava laddu, and coconut laddu. These wheat laddus involve less work and are prepared in a very short time. It took only 20 minutes for me to prepare these laddus.

Ingredients:
  • 1 cup Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 2 tsp Ghee
  • ¼ cup Milk
  • 1 cup desiccated Coconut
  • ¼ tsp Cardamom Seeds
  • 1 tsp Raisins
  • Some Cashews to garnish

Yields: 12 medium sized Laddus


Preparation:


In a non-stick pan add the ghee. When it melts add the cardamom seeds and fry for a little time. Later add the wheat flour and roast so well until the flour starts to give nice aroma. Be careful not to burn the flour.


Then add the coconut + sugar and stir well. Finally add the milk and raisins and mix well. Turn the flame off when the mixture becomes thick.


Make balls out of this mixture when it is still warm. Pour a little amount of milk in a bowl and dip the hand in this before making the laddus so that the hand won’t burn.


Garnish the laddus with the cashews and leave them on a plate to dry.


Transfer the laddus to an airtight container when they become dry and hard.

These laddus are flying off to dear Vani’s “RCI:Andhra Festival Foods” event.
These are also my contribution to “Sunday Snacks - Fix It” event hosted by Pallavi.

My dear friend Trupti has passed me the “Friendship Award”. Thanks for considering as your friend Trupti. You’re my dear friend too.
