20180310_183458

This dish has many of my childhood memories attached to it.My mom used to always make different type of chikkis, peanuts and sesame, but this Ladoo made of kurmura was my all time favourite.Since long was planning to try my hand on it,finally tried it today and result was same as my mom’s Ladoo.

Ingredients:

1 & 1/2 cup Jagged grated.

1 cup Kurmura (puffed rice)

2 tbsp roasted Seasme seeds.

1/4 cup roasted Peanuts/Daliya.

2 tbsp Ghee.

1/2 tsp Cardamom powder.

Method:

Mix together kurmura, sesame seeds & peanuts/Daliya, keep aside.

 

Heat a non stick pan, aggressive 1 tbsp Ghee and grated jagged, cook till syrup attains a hard ball consistency.

Add kurmura mixture and cardamom powder.

Mix well.

 

Remove in a greased plate, divide into equal portions,apply Ghee to your palms, take each portion and Shape to form a Ladoo. Finish remaining portions in the same way.Make sure you make Ladoo while mixture is hot, it will become hard once cooled.Apply ample amount of Ghee to palms to avoid burning or sticking of mixture to palm.

Store in air tight container.

Tip:Same mixture can be spread in greased plate and cut into pieces to form chikki.

Happy Cooking!!!

Sameera.
