Jowar Laddoo

Ingredients to make Jowar Laddoo

  • jowar flour (preferably coarse) 3/4 katori/ bowls
  • sooji 1/4 katori/ bowls
  • jaggery, grated 1/3 katori/bowl
  • ghee for frying
  • Grated coconut 2 tbsp
  • khus khus 3 tsp
  • sesame seeds 3 tsp
  • Roasted and grounded almonds 2 tsp
  • Elaichi/ cardamom powder 1 tsp
  • Jayfal/ nutmeg powder 1/4 tsp
  • ghee 2 tbsp, to make the laddoos
  • Milk 1/4 cup

How to make Jowar Laddoo

  1. Take both flours in a bowl and add 2 tbsp of ghee. Knead by adding milk and water. Make a medium sized dough (not too soft and not too hard)
  2. Heat ghee in a pan. Make oval shaped laddoos by pressing well to form impression of your fingers on it. Deep fry till the colour turns brown.
  3. Fry all and then let it cool a little, then break with hands and coarse it grindly. (I used a dry grinding jar)
  4. Roast the sesame seeds, khus khus (2 tsp ) and grated coconut. Coarsely grind all the three and add in the jowar mixture.
  5. Add elaichi and jayfal powder. Mix it well and add the grounded almonds.
  6. Now heat ghee to make the laddoos in a kadhai. Add in the grated jaggery, stir a little and transfer the ghee jaggery mixture in the jowar mix.
  7. Mix it all very well and make laddoos by pressing between palms.
  8. Roll the laddoos one by one in the khus khus mix.

My Tip:

Fry the laddoo on a medium flame to get the flour cooked properly. Roast the coconut, sesame seeds and khus khus as it gives the laddoo a nice flavour. Adding hot ghee with added jaggery helps to make the laddoos easily.
