What are Ladoos?

  1. What are Ladoos?    Ladoos are basically ball-shaped Indian sweets made by shaping a dough-like mixture into small balls with the palm of your hand. Ladoos can range from simple to elaborate to really complex! The basic ladoo involves crushing or powdering ingredients like roasted peanuts, coconut, dry fruits, etc., mixing them with sweeteners and spices, and shaping the mixture into ladoos using greased palms. The Quick Peanut Ladoo and Nuts Khoya Ladoo are made within minutes without much effort.

    Ladoos like the Til Ladoo, which is an indispensable part of Sankaranthi celebrations, require you make a syrup of jaggery or sugar, which binds together all the other ingredients. Such ladoos require a little practice because you need to deftly roll them while still warm. But it is definitely worth the effort, because these traditional delights have a timeless appeal. Another evergreen delight is the Besan Ladoo. Made with few and simple ingredients, there is one secret to making the best Besan Ladoo in town. You need to be patient while roasting the besan, till you get a rich and appetizing aroma!

    Some ladoos, however, require a little more effort than others. But, the effort shows in the outcome. One of the most famous of Indian mithaisa must-have in the Diwali mithai, is the Motichoor ki Ladoo! This requires you to make boondi, which is then drenched in spicy sugar syrup and then deftly rolled into ladoos. The taste and texture of this ladoo is simply out of the world!

    You can be innovative and bring together your choice of ingredients to make interesting ladoos. Go for healthy ladoos like the Oats and Mixed Nuts Ladoo. Or, please your kids with totally offbeat options like the Rocky Road Popcorn Balls or Chocolaty Balls – of course, these are ladoos too, whatever name you call them by!

Sometimes I eat a mixture of peanut powder and sugar. But this ladoo is better than the mixture as ghee and cardamom powder are added. Thank you :)
