Absolutely guilt free and very healthy laddus that require simple ingredients that are always available in the pantry. You'll love the rusticity of taste and texture.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 cup shelled peanuts
  • 1 cup oats
  • 1 1/2 cups jaggery, crumbled

Recipe Preparation

  1. Take peanuts in a baking tray. Preheat oven to 150 degrees. Set timer to 15 minutes. Toast the peanuts till they begin to crackle and turn golden.
  2. Or, take peanuts in a thick bottom wok. Roast till they crackle and become golden. Keep stirring during the process of roasting. Let the roasted nuts cool.
  3. Take oats in a thick bottom wok. Roast on medium flame till they become slightly crisp and the colour just begins to change. Let the oats cool.
  4. Take cold roasted nuts in a grinder and grind them to get a fine powder. Do not grind for too long.
  5. Grind oats to a fine powder.
  6. Transfer ground nuts and oats to a deep bowl. Mix well.
  7. Take crumbled jaggery and add to the mixture. Mix with hands. Break lumps of jaggery if any.
  8. Take a handful of mixture and shape into ball pressing the mixture tightly with your fingers. Use only one hand to shape laddu.
  9. In case if the mixture seems a bit dry, add more jaggery.
  10. Store in an airtight container.
My Tip: Use the winter jaggery that comes in cakes/blocks and is unrefined , soft and pliable. Do not use jaggery powder. It will not bind the mixture into laddu.
