Oats Laddu


My next try in oats was laddu, my mom use to make this type of laddu in pottu kadali and moong dal. This is on of my favorite sweet, its healthy too for kids. My little ones loved it when I made mini laddu’s for them.

Ingredients:


Oats powder
1 cup (heaped)
Powdered sugar
½ cup (heaped)
Chutney dal (pottu kadalai)
3 Tbsp
Ghee
3-4 Tbsp
Cashew nut finely chopped
1 Tbsp
Cardamom powder
¼ tsp
 
 
 
 
 

 
 

Directions:


  1. Dry roast chutney dal, and oats separately until nice aroma.
  2. After it cools, grind dal and oats together that to fine powder and sieve. For one cup of oats powder add half cup of sugar, cardamom powder and mix well.
  3. In one table spoon of ghee roast cashew nut and add to the mixture. Now heat the remaining ghee and add little by little and make stiff dough.
  4. Divide the dough to 10 parts and make it smooth round balls. Let it dry for 1 hour laddu’s are now ready to eat.
 
Tips:
  • When your adding ghee, be careful if it goes more don’t worry add some more oats powder.
  • Don’t reduce the ghee, you can’t eat, it will start to stick in your mouth.
  • I used 4 Tbsp. As soon as your done with the laddu it will be like more ghee but once it starts to dry, it will be ok.
