  1. If you are using raw Jowar grains then you will need to pop them first. Heat a pan well and toss a handful of grains.
  2. Never crowd a pan for roasting grains. They won’t get roasted evenly and might get burnt too.

  4. Alternately use the jowar flour which is easily available in winter all over India.
  5. In a heavy bottom non stick pan dry roast the flour on slow heat. Never hurry with these things. Good dish requires patience and passion.
  6. Once the flour starts to give out a roasted aroma and turns slightly brown remove it from the heat and keep aside.
  7. Now, In a grinder add the roasted nuts,seeds, raisins , dates and the jaggery. Grind till everything mixes into a smooth, sticky texture.
  8. In a bowl , spoon the roasted jowar flour and this mixture. Mix it with your fingers. Actually rub it in.
  9. Now heat the ghee. Once it is hot just pour it over the mixture and mix thoroughly. Quickly make lemon size balls and keep in a plate.
  10. Your delicious power packed laddoos are ready. Let them cool and then enjoy the earthy flavours.
  11. You can store them in air tight containers and eat one or two everyday. Children love it so encourage them to have these healthy sweets. You can carry them in your bag while travelling.
