Ragi Laddoo (Nachani Ladu)

Today's post is how to make Ragi Laddoo or as we call them in Marathi Nachaniche Ladu

Ragi or Nachani or Red millet or Finger millet has great health benefits like :
  1. It is extremely rich source of fiber 
  2. It helps lower cholesterol levels. 
  3. It helps weight control, diabetes and also cools the body
  4. It is cost effective and easily available.

The Theme for this Week is" Is everything round a laddu? " 

So extremely healthly and easy to make recipe that I am going to share is Ragi Laddoo or in Marathi Nachaniche Ladu

                  Ragi Laddoo (Nachaniche Ladu)

Ingredients :

1 cup Ragi Flour 
1/2 cup Homemade ghee
1/2 cup powdered sugar (depends on individual taste)
1/4 teaspoon Nutmeg / Jalphal 

Method : 
  1.  Heat 1/2 cup ghee in flat bottom pan or kadhai on gas.
  2. Add 1 cup Ragi plain flour (do not use Ragi satva) in it and roast it well until it comes together and you can smell the aroma. 
  3. Roasting the flour in ghee is the most critical aspect of making the laddoo as if it is less roasted, it would stick in the throat and would taste uncooked; whereas over roasting would burn the flour and leave bad aftertaste.
  4. When the ghee starts to separate, switch off the gas and let it cool down
  5. When the mixture is slightly cooled, add powdered sugar and mix well and ensure that there are no lumps.
  6. Add 1/4 teaspoon Nutmeg and mix well, taking care that there are no lumps.
  7. Prepare round shape laddoos of the mixture.
  8. Do not wait for mixture to cool down completely otherwise it would be difficult to mix well.
