Hello Sweeties!!!!! Hope you all had a fabulous Diwali and new year festivities at your end. I made the regular Diwali faral, but as many years as I am making Diwali goodies I try and make one new item, this year was no doubt the Whole Wheat ladoos. They are super easy to make and very healthy if you have growing boys or babies.
You will need;
makes 16-18 medium size ladoos.
2 Cups Whole Wheat Flour
1 Cup plus 2 Tbspn ghee/clarified butter
1.5 cups Sugar-Confectioner or ground sugar
1 tbspn Milk Masala/ Cashews/walnuts/pistas,saffron, nutmeg powder
**1 Tbspn dry Dates powder-- Sourced from India--Optional
approx 3/4th cup raisins
2 Tspn Cardamom Crushed or Elaichi powder
In a wok, heat the ghee, add the wheat flour and roast on medium heat. Stir continuously taking care than the flour does not stick to the pan and burn. Stir for about 25-30 mins, till the mixture looks frothy and becomes really loose.
When the flour changes color add the raisins and the milk masala powder. Switch off the flame and let cool. When the mix is warm enough to dip your finger and bear the heat, add the elaichi powder. Roll the ladoos when they are cold enough to hold shape. These keep well for 10-15 days, although they do not last that long.
Diwali spread at my end looked like this, whats cooking at your end????
Happy Diwali and let the festivities begin!!!!
