Poha Laddu

Ugadi! Festival time! What is there in sweet?πŸ˜‹ Try this awesome simple yet different and of course tasty recipe this time. I have prepared it with white poha. However, It can also be prepared with red poha as well. It can be prepaed with or without dry fruits. It will taste good in both the ways.


So without further ado, here is my poha laddu recipe:

Ingredients:

Poha(Flattened rice) - 1 cup
Grated jaggery - 1/3rd cup
Ghee - 3-4 tbsp or add as required
Cardamom powder - 1tsp
Milk - 1 tsp
Almonds (Optional) - 5-6
Cashew (Optional) - 5-6
Raisins (Optional)- 5-6


Method:

  • Dry roast poha on low flame. keep on stirring it. Don't worry even if it starts becoming brown.  
  • Try to break few granules with your hands. If you are able to do it, means it's done. 
  • Transfer it to some other plate. Let it cool down.
  • Grind jaggery and roasted poha together. It should be coarse.
  • Heat ghee in a pan. Add dry cashew, almonds, raisins.  All the dry fruits and nuts are optional. It will taste good even without dry fruits.
  • Saute them on low flame for 2-3 minutes. Cashews should be golden brown.
  • Add it to poha and jaggery mixture.
  • Add milk and mix well.
  • If you think that the mixture is dry and it will be difficult to bind laddus then add more ghee.
  • Shape them into small laddus.
  • Enjoy laddus! If you like then let me know. If not, still let me know.πŸ˜‰ Obviously! This is how I will improve 😎
