Ragi Laddoo

Happy New Year :)

Ragi laddoos are healthy and easy to make. Children are likely to eat ragi in the form of laddoos. Let's see how to make these nutritious laddoos..


What you need:

Ragi flour-1 cup
Grated jaggery-1/2 a cup
Ghee-4 tablespoons
Cashew nuts-6 broken
Cardamom powder-a pinch



  1. Heat the ghee in a kadai or pan and fry the broken cashew nuts until they turn brown in colour.
  2. Transfer the nuts into a bowl. Fry the ragi flour in the same pan on a low flame till  it changes colour and gives a nice aroma.
  3. Turn off the stove and keep it aside. Melt the jaggery in a vessel and filter it to remove the discards.
  4. Add the cardamom powder and cashew nuts to the flour. Pour the melted jaggery little by little until you get the consistency to make laddoos.
  5. Roll the flour into round balls using your palm. 

    Allow them to settle down for 10-15 minutes and store them in an air tight container.

          Note: You can replace jaggery with powdered sugar and melted ghee to make laddoos. You can also use nuts of your own choice like almonds and pisthachios.
