Peanuts Ladu Recipe by Gowri Chebbi
For a delightful Peanuts Laddu, gather the following ingredients:
- 1 cup dry roasted peanuts (UNSALTED)
- 2 cups dry coconut powder
- 3 cups jaggery
- 1 tbsp poppy seeds
- 1 tsp cardamom powder
- 1 tsp nutmeg powder
- 3 tbsp ghee
Begin by lightly dry roasting the peanuts until they turn a shade browner. Similarly, dry roast the poppy seeds and coconut powder. Once roasted, coarsely grind the peanuts and finely grind the poppy seeds, cardamom, and coconut together.
In a pan, heat the ghee and melt the grated jaggery in it, stirring until smooth. Once melted, combine the ground peanuts, poppy seeds, and coconut mixture into the jaggery syrup. Ensure everything is mixed well. While the mixture is still warm, shape them into small round balls to form your Peanuts Laddus. Let them cool and set before enjoying!
