Brown Rice Laddu

Here is another variety where you can sneak in brown rice for anyone who doesn’t like to eat brown rice. As this a sweet item they won’t say no to it. :)

I made this for this Diwali as a healthy sweet treat and it was a hit.


  • 1 cup Brown Rice
  • 1 cup grated Coconut (I used dry)
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • ½ cup Ghee
  • Few Cardamom Seeds
  • Few Cashews and Raisins
  • ¼ cup Milk, if needed (just keep on hand)


Heat a pan and dry roast brown rice until it becomes little puffed up. Keep aside to cool.

Then mix brown rice + sugar and powder them into a fine powder. Add coconut to this and mix well. Keep aside.

Heat a pan and melt ghee. Add raisins + cashews + cardamom and sauté well until raisins bubble up and cashews turn golden brown in color.

Pour this on top of brown rice mixture and mix well until it is blended well.

Note: At this point, if the brown rice mixture remains dry and can’t be made into balls, add milk mentioned in the ingredients and mix well.

Take small portions of the mixture and shape into round balls. Spread on a big plate and allow them to dry for some time.

Enjoy the tastiest and healthy laddu. I felt like these tasted similar to Rava Laddu.
