Looking for something to satisfy that sweet tooth? The wholesome goodness of jaggery and protein rich peanuts pack in quite a powerful punch! It is a speciality prepared during Makar Sankranthi


Ingredients

  1. 2 cups roasted unsalted peanuts without skin

  2. 1 cup or ¾ cup jaggery

  3. ½ tsp cardamom powder

Cookwares

Kadai , Fry pan and Plate

Step By Step Method

    • With the help of a food processor, grind the whole, roasted, unsalted peanuts. (Tip - Work in short pulses and give the peanuts a few seconds to cool between each pulse or else you’ll end up with a sticky mass.)

    • Crush the jaggery and mix it with the powdered peanuts and cardamom powder.

    • Form the mixture into balls.

    • (TIP * If you like your laddus to be on the sweeter side and if you love jaggery, use 1 cup of jaggery. 3/4th cup jaggery will give laddus that are moderately sweet)

    • Makes about 24 bite sized laddus
