Oats Laddu



Oats Laddu

Makes: 17

You will need

7 teaspoons ghee
1 cup (200 g) oats, make a fine powder
1 cup (200 g) sugar
1/4 teaspoon cardamom powder
2 - 3 tablespoons milk

Method

In a frying pan, heat 1 teaspoon ghee. Add powdered oats and stir continuously on a low to medium heat for 25 minutes or until there is a slight color change in oats mixture. Do not fry on high heat. The powder may get burnt.

Switch off the heat and add sugar, cardamom powder and 6 teaspoon ghee. Stir thoroughly for 5 minutes till oats mixture is well mixed with sugar, cardamom powder and ghee. May also add chopped and roasted cashew nuts and raisins.

Finally sprinkle 2 - 3 tablespoons milk to enable binding the mixture to form the shape of laddu. The initial appearance of laddu mix will be moist (or wet). Mix all the ingredients well and make small laddus / balls (slow process and may need patience to roll these into perfect balls). After drying for 15 - 30 min, store in an airtight container.

The addition of milk in the mix makes the laddu susceptible to being spoil quickly - they are not as lasting as besan laddu. Hence make in small quantity / consume the same day or refrigerate.
