Whole wheat Laddu / Churmundo / Govva pittiye Laddu

Makes :12 laddus

Ingredients

7 teaspoons ghee
1 cup (200 g) whole wheat (Aashirwad / Pillsbury / homemade)
190 g sugar, powdered
1/4 teaspoon cardamom powder

Method

Buy only fresh flour. Sieve flour. Keep it ready.

Take a thick bottomed iron kadai / frying pan. Heat 1 teaspoon ghee on a medium heat. Add whole wheat flour and stir continuously on a low to medium heat for 25 minutes or until fragrant / color changes. Do not stir on high heat. Always maintain low to medium heat.

Switch off the heat and finally mix with 190 g powdered sugar, remaining 6 teaspoon ghee and cardamom powder. Mix all the ingredients well and keep aside to cool for 15 minutes. You can also add 1 tablespoon shallow fried cashew nuts and raisins.



Once the mix cools, roll the mix tightly into laddu / small balls (11 - 13 laddus / balls). Size can vary as per preference. Spread them on a tissue paper so that any residual ghee will be removed. Store in an air tight container.
