Oats Laddoo

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp ghee
  • 2 tbsp dried nuts powder (almonds and cashewnuts)
  • 1/4 tsp cardamom powder

Method

  • Heat a pan. Dry roast the oats for 2 to 3 minutes till it changes to light brown.
  • Finely grind the above in a mixer and keep aside.
  • Heat a pan on a low flame. Add powdered jaggery to the pan and 2 tbsp water.
  • Once jaggery has completely melted, add grated coconut and keep stirring on a low flame till the coconut is fully absorbed by the jaggery.
  • When the mixture begins to leave the sides of the pan and tends to become slightly thicker, switch off the flame.
  • Add roasted oats powder, cardamom powder and nuts powder and mix well. Allow it to cool down.
  • When the oats mixture is still warm, grease your palms with ghee and shape the ladoos.
  • Delicious and healthy oats ladoos are ready to be served.
  • Oats laddoos can be stored in an airtight container for upto a week.

Notes

  • If you are not able to bind the mixture or if the mixture is too dry, add some ghee and before you shape them.
  • You can also add walnuts to the dried nuts powder.
