Laddu - this word makes a lot of people drool... For my daughter it relates to strength and power.. All thanks to the Chhota Bheem cartoon she loves where laddu is a symbol for strength.. And traditionally laddu is made by frying gram flour and dipping them in sugar syrup.. Today we are going to see a laddu, a recipe I got from Priya’s space which requires no frying..
Carrot - 1/2 cup (grated finely)
Almond meal - 1/4 cup
Paneer - 1/4 cup (grated finely)
Milk Powder - 2 table spoons
Ghee - 1 table spoon
Cardamom Powder - 1/2 tea spoon
Sugar - 1/2 cup
Raisins / Almond flakes - a few for garnish
Heat ghee in a heavy bottomed pan and add the carrots
Saute for a few minutes until the raw smell of the carrots goes away
Add the sugar, paneer, milk powder and cook on high flame until the mixture thickens
Add the almond meal, cardamom powder and cook for a few more minutes until it get off the bottom of the vessel
Remove from heat
Make small laddus (balls)
You can roll them on almond flakes and serve!!
