Wheat Flour Laddu for Neivedyam's 4th Birthday!


Four long years of blogging, blog hopping, comments, friends, facebook and many more. I never get bored of doing all this apart from regular nagging by hubby and others in the family, my 2 year old saying stop publising even if she does not know what she is saying:), weight gain and all my jeans going tight:( ......
Neivedyam has given me an identity apart from what I am!! I love doing what I am doing and thanks to all my friends and visitors for making this possible. I know I say it every year but I mean it from my heart!

Now lets get back to the job.....:)

Ingredients

2 cups wheat flour
1 1/2 cup sugar (finely powdered)
1 cup ghee (melted)
1/4 cup almonds(chopped into small pieces)
1/4 cup cashewnuts(chopped into small pieces)
1 tbsp pistachios (finely chopped)
2 tbsp raisins
1/2 tsp cardamom powder

Preparation

Heat a pan, add 2 tsp ghee, add all the chopped dryfruits and fry till they slightly change colour. Set aside.
In the same pan add 2-3 tbsp ghee and roast the wheat flour on medium heat.
Once the flour changes colour slightly and aroma raises, turn off the flame, add the dryfruits, cardamom powder, remaining melted ghee, sugar and mix well. Transfer the flour from the pan to a plate and make laddus while the mixture is hot and bearable enough to hold in your hands.
Wheat flour laddus are ready. Some people even add edible gum to this laddu to give extra richness.
