A feast of ladoos heralds the festival season. Varieties of ladoos are made all over India throughout the year for various festivals. This sweet can be made with different ingredients and in many different ways. Here I am presenting a recipe of a Gujarati ladoo made from wheat flour - Churma Ladoo. My neighbour at my mother's place used to make it for Diwali. We all used to like it very much.
Wheat Flour (coarse if possible) - 2 cups
Ghee - 3/4 cup
Ghee for frying
Jaggery - 1 1/4 cup
Dry grated coconut - 1/2 cup (optional)
Take the flour in a bowl. Add ghee and mix well. Make stiff dough with water or milk. Roll into balls. Heat the ghee and deep fry on low heat till they are golden brown. Remove and cool. Break and crush them. Sieve through a coarse sieve.
Melt jaggery till it starts bubbling. Add the coconut. Mix well and pour it over the wheat mixture. Mix well and make ladoos when still warm. Arrange in a plate.
