Laddu is the term used for a sweet shaped to a ball. I have fond memories of my mum making Rava Laddus (Semolina balls). My sister-in-law Sandhya, makes these healthyish laddus and I built my recipe on that. Most of the ingredients are your standard pantry variety and it is a guilt free snack.
3 cups rolled oats, toasted
1 cup desiccated coconut, toasted lightly
10g sliced almonds, toasted
40g cashew pieces, toasted
10 cardamom pods – seeds separated
300g sweetened condensed milk
Place the cardamom seeds and toasted oats in a food processor or spice grinder jar and powder.
Tip the powdered oats and all remaining ingredients except condensed milk into a large bowl.
Mix in the powders with the condensed milk, a little at a time. Once all the condensed milk is incorporated, make small balls or laddus. Makes 30 -32 laddus.
