Ragi Ladoo With Jaggery



Yum



Hello everyone, lately i have really become a health conscious person the result of that is the introduction of ragi in to the daily diet.

Today this recipe for ragi ladoo is also a result of that... and recently i have made the ragi khuz in a very traditional way, i will be updating the recipe for it soon.

Ok coming back to today's recipe, normally white sugar is being used for making ladoo's but i am totally against the white sugar and try to my max to avoid the usage of white sugar in my recipes. But i can never stay away from sweets as i have a very strong sweet tooth :D so i replace sugar with jaggery which is a healthier version of sugar, not only that consumption of jaggery means consumption of iron.

This recipe is a double damaka as Ragi is high in absorbable calcium, iron and fiber.... when combined with jaggery this becomes very nutritious sweet to be consumed.

Lets treat our sweet tooth in a healthy way...


Ingredients:

Ragi powder 1 cup
Ghee 1/2 cup
Jaggery grated 3/4 cup to 1 cup (adjust to ur tastebuds)
Cardamom powder 1 tsp
Salt 1 pinch

Method:

Pour the ghee in a roasting pan and once heated add the ragi powder to it and keep roasting for 15 - 20 mins.

After it has been nicely roasted remove from heat and add the cardamom powder, salt and grated jaggery and mix well with your fingers and make the ladoo's while the mixture is hot (or it may be hard to make the balls)

TIP: if the mixture becomes cold and it becomes hard to make the balls, heat the mixture in microwave for a minute.



Store in an airtight container.
