About Besan-Atta-Rava Laddu

Ready laddus

Laddus is the common item for weddings, house warmings etc. I have already put up Wheat atta laddu (Churmi laddu) in my earlier posting for Diwali. This laddu whose recipe I borrowed from my mom is the mix of the two attas and chiroti rava. It not only tastes great but its also hard to discern the contents even after you eat it !

It can be prepared in 30 minutes but to tie the same etc., in all it will consume 45 minutes

What you need to have

Chiroti rava(Thin semolina) – 1 cup 1/2 cup

Besan atta – 1/ 2 cup

Wheat atta – Around 1 cup

Pure ghee – Little more than 1/2 cup

Sugar powder – Little more than 2 cups

Cardamom – 20-25(if small)

Some Kishmish, some Cashews

What you do with what you have

1. Place a wide bottomed pan with 1/3 of the pure ghee in it. On melting roast the rava on medium flame till you get a pleasant aroma and set aside. Make sure it is not burnt and/or changes colour.

2. Repeat Step 1 with Besan Atta and Wheat Atta separately.

3. Mix them all together in a bowl and heat the mixture for about 10-15 seconds while constantly stirring.

Your laddoos are ready!

What to remember

– Sugar is heated and powdered so that laddus do not turn brittle and that they can be shaped well. Do not overheat sugar causing it to change color.

– Add ghee while roasting besan or atta in such a way that you are able to stir it freely on the flame – too little ghee will cause the spatula to struck and you will not be able to stir properly.

How long it takes: 45 minutes

Number of Laddus – 25-30

      Hi Mahalakshmi,

      If you add milk to make the laddoos , the shelf life will be short. Instead i prefer to add a little pure ghee.
