Serves: 18-20 ladoos
Atta Ladoo :
  • 3 tbsp chopped almonds
  • 3 tbsp chopped cashews
  • 3 tbsp shredded coconut
  • 3 tbsp ghee
  • 2 tsp powdered Gond or Edible Gum (optional)
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour (Atta)
  • ¼ tsp ajwain (carom seeds)
  • ½ tsp ginger powder
  • ¾ cup ghee, melted
  • 1 cup powdered sugar or as per taste
Atta Ladoo:
  1. In a deep heavy bottom pot, add 1 tbsp ghee. Once hot add powdered edible gum and you will see it starts to puff up like popcorn. Take it out on a paper towel lined plate. In case you are not using edible gum, just skip this step.
  2. In the same pot, add 2 tbsp ghee and add chopped almonds, chopped cashews and coconut. Roast for few minutes and then transfer to a paper towel covered plate.
  3. Now add 2 cups whole wheat flour and ¾ cup melted ghee and cook it on slow flame. Keep stirring it for good 10-15 minutes. Soon you can smell the aroma of ghee and cooked flour and it will turn slight goldenish. At that point take it out on a big plate or bowl and let it cool for about 30 minutes.
  4. Now once cool, add sugar and using your hands mix until sugar is mixed evenly inside the flour + ghee mixture. Taste and adjust sugar as per taste. Now add roasted nuts and edible gum (if using) and mix.
  5. Shape them into ladoos and store in an airtight container.
  6. They stay good stored in airtight container and sitting on counter top for 15-20 days.
