Pinni - A Perfect Energy Laddu

( Click image for enlarged view )

Hi dearies .... hope u all in good health. It has been a been long vacation and I really missed u all and your wonderfull creations. Thank you so much for all your good wishes and comments.

I spent a good time this whole month, I was tempted to post a recipe but I reminded myself that I am on a vacation : P.In this visit I learnt some new dishes.One of them was this wheat laddu that I learnt from my SIL who is from north india,we had prepared it together. This is made in Rajasthan, Punjab and UP. It is a great treat for kids as it tastes very yummy, also ideal for mothers who have just delivered a baby.As it is also very soft and powdery once in your mouth it would melt easily, it is very ideal for old people too.It is recommended to be eaten with a glass of milk to give complete nutrition.So here is the recipe......

Ingredients:
  • 250 gms wheat flour
  • 250 gms sugar
  • 250 gms ghee
  • 15 gms dry ginger
  • 25 gms chopped cashew
  • 25 gms chopped dry coconut
  • 25 gms chopped almonds
  • 25 gms chopped muskmelon seeds
  • 25 gms chopped makhana

Cooking Procedure

Heat 1/2 of the ghee in a big pan, when it melts completely and begins to simmer add the wheat flour and make the flame to low and stir continously till a nice aroma comes from it and changes its color to light golden brown. Switch off the flame and keep aside for it to cool.

Heat some ghee and deep fry the makhani till it becomes crispy but it should not change its color.Shift the makhani to a plate and let it cool, then crush them with your hands.

Remove all the ghee from the pan into ghee container.

Heat just 1 tbsp ghee and in the same pan and fry the ginger(whole piece) till itbecomes crispy and keep aside to cool. Grind it to a fine powder and keep aside.

Keep 1 tbsp ghee in the pan and fry the chopped chashew on a low flame till golden brown.Shift to plate

And do the same for the rest dry fruits(almonds,muskmelon seeds) and coconut and keep all aside to cool.

Sugar Crystallization Process :
In a deep bottom pan add sugar along with 1 cup of water and stir on medium flame. The sugar will pass through 4 stages (Sugar > Syrup > Thick Syrup > Sugar ) We should be constantly stirring to avoid lumps. In the end it will again be crystal sugar.... if u have some lumps remove them and grind them. Remove to plate and let it cool.

Now take this sugar and with wheat flour evenly, then all the ingredient except ghee.Mix nicely.

Divide the mixture into small portions and add and the required amount of ghee to one portion and shape it into a nice ball.Your Laddus are ready ,shift them to dry container after 2 to 3 hrs.

Note:
If it difficult to fry the total wheat flour at a time then mix the ghee n flour first n divide it to 3 parts n individually u can fry each part separately in a pan ,which will make task easy.

You will finally get to make 10 laddus and these ladoos have a shelf life of one month so u can prepare more to keep it in stock .

I want to try out all the sweets I see on the blogs some of them new and some of them I know, but my kids do not want to eat ( My H loves sweets, but should think about our age too right ?).
