  • 1/4 Cup pistachio
  • 1/4 Cup edible gum
  • 1 Tsp cardamom powder (optional)
  • 1/4 Cup raisins (optional)
  • 1 Cup ghee or clarified butter
  • 2 Cup jaggery powder

Instructions

  • First of all, take a heavy bottomed kadhai and add wholewheat flour and half of the ghee quantity.
  • Roast on the medium to low flame till the flour color changes to golden brown color. This process takes about 20-25 min.
  • Grind the edible gum to a fine powder. It will be easy to fry while adding to ghee at a later stage.
  • When flour is done, keep that aside in a wide plate.
  • In the same kadhai add 1 tbsp of ghee and roast almond, cashew, pumpkin seeds and pistachio. Keep them aside and let them cool down
  • Add lotus seeds in the same kadhai with a little quantity of ghee and roast for 3-4 min. Let it cool down.
  • Grind all these roasted dry fruits including raisin to a coarse powder and keep it ready.
  • Finally, take all the remaining ghee in a kadhai and add edible gum powder. It will puff up, now switch off the flame.
  • To this add wheat flour and dry fruit coarse powder and give a nice stir in order to combine all ingredients. Add cardamom powder and mix well.
  • Let this mixture cool down a bit, heat should be tolerable to you. After almost 15 min of cooling down add jaggery powder, mix well with your hands now.
  • With 1 cup of ghee, we can make laddu easily. But just in case you find this mixture a bit dry then add 2 tbsp extra ghee and mix.
  • Take a fistful mixture and shape it into a round ball. Do the same process with the rest of the mixture.
  • Dry fruit laddu with wholewheat flour and edible gum are reasy to serve.

Notes

  1. Raisin can be avoided. I added in these laddus.
  2. Above mentioned procedure can be performed in any sequence. I got the great result with these steps actually. Laddu is crunchy in texture without adding semolina.
  3. 1 Cup ghee or clarified butter was enough for me to prepare this dry fruit laddu.
  4. Replace jaggery with the same amount of sugar if required.
  5. If you need less quantity of ghee then reduce ghee and add milk. But with milk, their shelf life will decreases.
  6. These laddu can be stored in air tight container for good two weeks without any problem.
