    Hi Madhu,
    those laddoos look very tempting, can just pick up one and eat off the screen!
    Can you please tell me how long do you fry @ 1cup atta? Also I see that you roast it dry without any ghee, is this regular roti ka atta? Any specific brand you recommend?
    Thanks for a great recipe!

    Hi Shelly,

        Thanks for your nice comment. I have used regular whole wheat flour. Any brand which is available to you will work fine. But don’t use the atta flour. It takes about 5-6 mins on medium heat for wheat flour to roast. Once you start roasting them you’ll know the difference and you get nice aroma after 5 mins or so. That’s when you are suppose to add rest of the things. Hope this much information is good enough for you. Let me know when you give it a try.

    Hi Madhu,
    Healthy and quick recipe. Thanks for sharing. Your ladoo looks sooo nice. ou

    Thank you MT. Its indeed quick and healthy.

  5. Krithika Says:

    Looks delicious !! As a kid I used to eat the roasted flour with sugar before my mother could make laddoos. I am little confused after reading the first comment. Are you saying not to use regular atta that we buy from Indian store ?

    Hi Krithika,

        What I meant to say was we can make using whole wheat atta. I use Golden temple  chapathi atta which is not good for making these kinds of laadu( hope I didn’t confuse you more).

     Roasted flour when its warm tastes so good , I too used to do that Krithika. Thanks.

    Hi Madhu,
    I tried these laddus .. they turned out so tasty and its a big hit with my toddler.
    Thank you so much ! 🙂 Could you post some more recipes for toddlers?

  10. vijaylakshmi Says:

    I made the laddoo exactly as per your recipe but half the quantityi.e. 1/2 cup whole wheat flour,quarter cup powdered sugar and two tablespoons ghee.I roasted the atta for 6 minutes,added the sugar and the melted ghee.The laddoo is rather dry and not very tasty,Do you think I under-roasted or over-roasted the atta?Or should I put more ghee? Please help me.My mother used to make this laddoo but she died before I thought of asking for the recipe.

    wonderful issues altogether, you just received a emblem new reader. What could you suggest in regards to your put up that you just made some days in the past? Any sure?

    I would also like to add that in case you do not actually have an insurance policy or else you do not belong to any group insurance, you might well gain from seeking assistance from a health broker. Self-employed or people who have medical conditions ordinarily seek the help of one health insurance dealer. Thanks for your writing.

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be
    really something that I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complex and very broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!
