Easy & Quick Ragi Laddus


Here is platter of healthy and quick ragi laddus on this 6th day of blogging marathon. The wholesome ragi, the nutritious almonds, the sweet coconut - jaggery combo, flavorful cardamom all together combine resulting in these delicious laddus. It can be put together under 10 minutes and an easy one even for beginners. J

Ingredients: (For 12 laddus)
1/2 cup Ragi flour
1/4 cup Almonds
1/4 cup Sesame seeds
1/4 - 1/2 cup Grated dry coconut (I used 1/4 cup.)
1/2 cup Jaggery powder (or to taste)
1 tsp Cardamom powder


Method:
* Dry toast ragi flour, almonds and sesame seeds individually. Let them cool. Toast ragi flour for a couple of minutes. Almonds and sesame seeds each need around a minute to get toasted.
* Grind all the ingredients to the desired texture in a blender or a food processor.
* Shape the ground mixture into laddus. I did not add any ghee / milk to make laddus. There is no need unless if the mixture is too dry to shape into laddus.
* Store them in an airtight container. They can be refrigerated.


Note:
* You can increase or decrease the quantities of ingredients according to the taste preferred.
* Almonds can be substituted with peanuts. Or a combination of various nuts can be used. Cashews, walnuts, pistachios are good choices.

This is my 'Ragi' themed post on day 6 of this BM#6. Check what the other marathoners are cooking.
