Yesterday when I felt my sweet tooth needed some treat decided to make this. It was actually simple and was wondering why I never made it all this while! The main reason why I was worried was I had never helped amma with this laddoo. Usually my aunt's used to come over so they helped her whenever we had to do in large quantities. Anyways, it came out good and that is why I am sharing this with you.
Here is what's needed:
1 Cup Wheat flour/Atta
1/2 Cup Powdered Sugar
1/4 Cup Ghee
1 tsp Fresh Cardamom Powder
1) Heat Ghee in a kadai and add the Wheat flour. Fry on low until the raw smell goes off and gives out a nice aroma. The colour changes to slightly dark brown. Switch off.
2) Add in Sugar and Cardamom Powder and mix well. (Taste the mixture and add more sugar powder if you desire. The measure given above is for semi sweet laddoo) Let it cool until the mixture is easier to handle.
3) Take some mixture in your palm and roll it into a ball. You cannot use both your palms to shape this up as it is crumbly.
I could make 15 small laddoo's using this measure. You may add Cashews and Raisins fried in Ghee. I did not.
