This is Bingo’s most favorite sweet. Initially I used to make in bulk but, now-a-days I am making it whenever required. I don’t measure the ingredients. I am giving a rough measurement here.
Atta – 3/4 cup
Sugar – Little less than 1/2 cup
Melted ghee – As required
Badam and cashew (optional) – 10 nos. each
Dry roast the atta till it starts fuming. Do it in a low flame and stir continuously otherwise it will get burnt easily. Powder the sugar and nuts separately.
Mix atta, sugar powder and nuts powder together. Ad ghee little by little and make a crumbly mix and make laddu out of this mixture. Store in an air tight container and savour.
This is not the original color of the laddus, this is due to bad lighting:
Original color is this:
Adding nuts powder is optional. Bingo does not eat nuts and dry fruits as it is so, I hide them in powdered form in her food.
Adding ghee is according to one’s preference. I add extra ghee for easy formation of laddu.
You can add powdered edible gum (gaund??) as well into this laddu. It is good to consume edible gum during winter as it will induce body heat. But, more than two laddus are not advisable at a time. In that case, we can drink a cup of milk to cool the body. (this is applicable only if we add edible gum).
