This snack is not only healthy but can be rustled up quickly for hungry children! It can also be a nutritious snack for adults (you could choose to drop cocoa powder from the ingredients list). These laddus are rich in protein and fibre – the perfect healthy option to munch on to satisfy your sweet cravings.
– 1/4th cup each of foxtail millet flour, barnyard millet flour, ragi flour, pearl millet flour (even better if u can get the sprouted ones, i sprout these at home)
– ¼ th cup cocoa powder, unsweetened (can be optional, kids like it anyway!)
– 12 each, chopped almonds, cashew nuts
– 12 raisins
-2 tbsp ghee
– 3/4th cup organic jaggery powder
– ½ tsp cardamom powder
- Add the ghee to a pan and heat gently
- Roast the dry fruits in ghee until golden brown. Remove and keep aside
- Now in the same pan, add all the flours and cocoa powder and roast till the raw smell is gone. Stir continuously to avoid burning on low flame.
- Add the roasted dry fruits and cardamom powder, mix well and switch off the flame
- Empty this mixture into another plate
- Add the jaggery powder and mix well
- Make small balls out of this mixture to form Laddus. Add a little ghee if needed (if the mixture is too dry to hold the shape of a ball)
