1/2 tsp.elaichi powder(cardamon powder)
pinch of salt
2-3 tblsp.ghee/olive oil.
Heat the jaggery in a little water till it is melted.(no need of thick syrup).
Roast the flour on a low flame in ghee or oil till you get the roasted aroma(do not brown it)
Powder the almonds in a food processor or blender.
Add the rest of the ingredients and blend for 2 minutes.
Transfer the blended flour to another bowl.Form into laddu.(extra oil or ghee may be
