This is one of the easiest and least fussy sweets I’ve ever made. It uses humble ingredients that come together to make lovely morsels of delight. And the best part is that you simply can’t go wrong with just 4 ingredients! This recipe makes a dozen bite-sized ladoos.
Also, can you really find fault with me being this happy while eating a ladoo? Can you?
I didn’t think so.
1 mixing spoon
1 cup for measure
1 and 1/4 cups atta or wholewheat flour
3/4 cup sugar (powdered in the mixie)
3/4 cup ghee (clarified butter)
1 cardamom pod (crushed to release the seeds, which can then be powdered with the back of a spoon)
1. Roast the wholewheat flour on medium flame, stirring continuously to ensure it doesn’t burn.
2. Once the colour of the flour changes to about two shades darker, add in the ghee and mix well.
3. Once the ghee is mixed in well and the consistency of the flour and ghee resembles that of fine, damp sand, add in the powdered sugar and cardamom.
4. Take the mixture off the heat and let it cool for a while until the temperature is warm enough to mould into small spheres.
5. Let the ladoos cool and form their shapes before you eat them!
