Peanut-Oat Laddoo

Posted on Updated on

Peanuts are a popular time pass snack.  I have already put up Masala Peanuts (with and without garlic), peanut laddoos and peanut chikki etc.  Today I am putting up Peanut-Oat laddoos which are once again good from health point of view as well as easy to prepare. Here it is:

What you need to have:

1. Peanuts – 1 cup

2. Oats – 1 cup

3. Grated Jaggery – 3/4 cup

4. White Sesame seeds – 2 Tablespoons

5. Cardamom – 4-5

Ingredients of Peanut-Oats laddoos

What you do with what you have:

1. Place a skillet on medium flame with peanuts in it. Dry roast it till you get a pleasant aroma. (When you just rub peanuts with your hands the skin should be pealed off  easily.)

2. In the same skillet add oats and dry roast it on medium/low flame till it is done.  (Oats changes the colour a little and turns crispy.)

3. Wash the sesame seeds and dry roast the same on medium flame till it splutters.

4. Peel and powder peanuts, powder dry roasted oats as well and grate jaggery too. Powder cardamom. Place all these ingredients in a broad based bowl so that it is easy to mix.

5. Mix all the powders and knead it in such a way that one can shape it into laddoos.

6. Apply strength and shape them into round laddoos and is as shown in the image below.

Number of Laddoos: 25 laddoos

How long it takes: 45 minutes

Good to remember:

1. Do not over roast peanuts or oats. Roast instead on medium flame (of course adjusting based on your burner size)

2. Grate jaggery fine to get it mixed properly so that one can easily shape the laddoos as we do not use ghee etc.

3. Use quality jaggery to retain the colour of the laddoos and also to get the consistency for the laddoo mix to shape them.

    Dear Prathiba Mayi,
    I tried this laddoo. I followed the recipe correctly, but still I was not able to shape the mixture into laddoos. I do make ‘churmundo’ at home and am used to the process. Finally after putting in 2 tbs of ghee, I was able to shape it.
    What kind of jagerry did you use? Is it ‘anta goda’? The peanuts were not ground very finely, do you think that could be the reason.
    Nevertheless, the taste was awesome. I want to try again, without ghee. Please advise.

      Hi PP,

      I had used the normal “Unde Bella” which we use in cooking etc., One more thing please do not ground the peanuts too coarse as well. Actually it is not as easy as it is usual. One has to mix the dough nicely with grated jaggery in such a way that you are able to make the laddoos.
