Atta Ladoo/ Atte ke Ladoo
Ladoos, the word which resonates with every Indian festival and festivities. Be it any occasion you will find Ladoos on the menu. When there are umpteenth varieties of ladoos you can have a new variety for every occasion.
Whether you are going for a trip, or you have some Pooja at home, or during any festival this is the first thing that starts the festivities.
My festivities also start with preparing Ladoos. I make so many varieties like- besan ladoos, malai ladoos, motichoor ladoos, nariyal ladoos. I've made them on several occasions.
This time the reason for making them is very very special: My Son, who came home for vacations, is going back to college and I am packing all my love for him in these beauties. I wish I can express in words that how much I miss him each day but such is life...
These ladoos are super easy to make. Made with whole wheat flour and power packed nuts and superfood ghee, this is a very wholesome and filling snack. And not to forget homemade is always the best!!

Whole Wheat flour/ Atta- 2 Cups
Clarified Butter/ Ghee-3/4th cup
Powdered Sugar/ Boora- 1.5 cups
Green cardamom Powder-1/2 teaspoon
Almonds- 25, roughly chopped
Cashews- 20, roughly chopped
Pistachios- 10-15, roughly chopped DIRECTIONS:
In a wok or non stick pan add whole wheat flour and ghee.
Roast the flour on low flame.
Roast until the flour turns aromatic and dark brown in color.
Add nuts and cardamom powder also.
All the nuts will get roasted in the hot ghee and flour mix.
Switch off the flame when the ghee begins to ooze out from the flour.
Cool down the mix little bit so that it is easy to handle.
If you will add powdered sugar to hot mix it'll release moisture. And the mix will become lumpy and moist.
Add powdered sugar when the mix is at room temperature.
Start making ladoos.
Divide the mix in lemon size balls and tightly bind each ball in a closed fist.
Garnish with some chopped nuts.
Store ladoos in air tight jars.
