Wheat Laddoos!!!

First time on my blog I am posting a mithai item. Its easy to prepare and scrumptiously melting in the mouth kind of recipe!

Recipe (12 to 15 laddoos)
8 to 10 tbspn. Wheat Flour
4 to 5 tbspn. Ghee
6 to 7 tbspn. Powdered Sugar or 8 tbspn jaggery
½ tspn. Cardamom powder (Elaichi)
Saffron for decoration

Heat ghee in a pan, add wheat flour to it and sauté till it is fragrant; it turns a bit darker and lighter. Don’t hurry up in this process. Keep the flame low, it should happen in about 15 to 20 minutes. This is a crucial process. Once you ensure it’s done, add sugar/jaggery while its still hot. Let it become warm, so that you can knead it properly. It should be mixed really well, it is becomes very soft. Add elaichi powder and make laddoos! You may add a little ghee while making laddoos if you feel it’s too dry.
Decorate it with saffron threads.
And pop in you mouth, I bet they will melt in your mouth!
