This ladoo is made with prosomillet( Pani varagu in Tamil). Millet and millet flour is
more sought after nowadays ,due to its health benefits,and I thought to mix it with
the basic rawa ladoo mix. This time I ground the rawa too, after powdering the millet
So let me take you to the recipe right away!
1 cup semolina
1 cup proso millet
1/2 cup coconut grated
1 cup sugar ( I used candy/Kalkandu powdered)
1/2 cup ghee
Half teaspoon cardamom powder
1/4 tsp dry ginger powder (optional)
1/4 cup khova or milk powder( optional)
Heat 2 tblsp ghee and roast the millet first.
When the millet turns light golden, remove from fire and set aside.
Add another spoon of ghee and lightly roast the semolina and coconut.
If you are adding khoya or mawa you can add when adding coconut.If using milk powder
you can add after removing from fire.
Powder the millet first,next add the semolina and coconut mixture and again pulse for 1
-2 seconds .Add the sugar and mix well .Heat the rest of the ghee and lightly fry
cashewnuts and raisins in it and pour over the mixture .Mix well and make ladoos.
If you find the mixture dry to bind ,add a little milk .
This ladoo is a good source of nutrients and energy,so… for those who have no time for breakfast ,can pop 1-2 as a substitute for breakfast.
