Atta ke laddu (wheat flour sugar balls)

Hii hello everyone..welcome back to my Indian food garden…today I have come up with an Indian traditional authentic dessert which is soo delicious as you can see in the picture..The atta ka laddu or if you redefine it then you an call it wheat flour sugar balls…atta is the Indian name of whole wheat flour and laddu means sugar balls..it is basically a winter sweets..my grandparents used to tell us that duing winter times atta ka laddu keeps our body warm..and we used to wait for this delicious dessert every winter..if you are willing to taste this delicious atta ke laddu then do follow the recepie below..the crunches of nuts inside makes it even more rich and yummy in taste..

And most importantly its an easy recepie..😍😍just a little effort is needed.

Ingredients-

1. 2 cups whole wheat flour

2. 3/4 cup melted ghee(non salted butter)

3. 1 cup powdered sugar(grind the regular sugar)

4.50 g.m chopped almonds

5. 20 g.m raisins

6 1/2 tea spoon cardamom powder for flavor

Method:-

Take a pan..put it on medium flame…let the pan be completely dry..now add ghee(butter) into it..let it be a little warm…now add the wheat flour into it..mix really well..cook in low flame for 5 minutes..now add the dry fruits like almonds and raisins into it so that the dry fruits also get roasted at the same time..stirr continuously until the flour turns golden brown..add cardamom powder and mix well for 1 minute more…the reason behind putting cardamom powder in the last is to let the flavor be fresh without overpowering the actual taste of laddus…now switch off the gas…keep the pan aside…keep stirring it between and let it be cool down…when it is completely cooled down..add the powdered sugar into it..mix well..make sure to cool down the flour completely before putting the sugar…because if we will put the sugar even into the warm mixture..it will melt and the texture of the laddus(balls)will not be the exact as it should be…

Now after mixing sugar really well…make round balls of around 1 and 1/2 inches and do try..

I m sure you are not gonna regret…its as delicious as it looks…

Do try and share your laddus with your parents and family…😊😊

Good dayy✌✌
