  • In a large pan , heat 2 tablespoons ghee.
  • Add chopped nuts and fry until it changes colour.
  • Remove onto a plate.
  • Into the same pan , add the milk solids.
  • Loosen the milk solids and do this on a medium flame.
  • Once the milk solids are loosened , add the wheat flour.
  • Roast the flour on medium flame until the colour of the wheat flour changes and it’s fragrant.
  • Roasting wheat flour takes a little more time.
  • When the colour changes, switch off the flame and remove it into a bowl.
  • When the flour is slightly warm , add the fried nuts and sugar.
  • Give it a good mix.
  • If the mixture is dry and not holding shape , add a tablespoon of ghee.
  • Do not add too much ghee all at once , then the mixture may turn too soft and will not hold shape.
  • Take little portion at a time and shape it into a ladoo.
  • Store it in an airtight container and enjoy the delicious, healthy ladoo everyday !

Note : when making ghee or clarified butter , usually for about 1 kg of butter , you get about 1/2 a cup of milk solids.

Use castor sugar to get a grainy texture in the ladoo.
