Wish you all my lovely readers a very happy Krishna janmashtami. As beaten rice is one of the favourite things of lord Krishna. Beaten rice is also known as poha in Hindi and Avalakki in Kannada.
This ladoo is one of my twin daughter’s favourite things in this whole wide world. I learnt this addictive crunchy ladoo recipe from my sister’s Mother-In-Law. Now let’s get started with the recipe.
Whole wheat flour-1 cup
Chickpea flour/Besan -1 cup
Thick beaten rice – 2 cups (thicker variety, which is used for deep frying in savoury making)
Sugar- 2 ½ cup
Clarified butter (ghee) – ½ to ¾ cup (as required)
Dry fruits – 1 cup (We like chopped almond and cashew)
Cardamom powder – 1tsp
1. Dry roast wheat flour and chickpea flour separately in a thick bottomed vessel and keep small flame in a gas stove, so that flour will not get burnt and fry uniformly.
2. Fry dry fruits with little ghee and keep aside.
3. Deep fry beaten rice and put it in a tissue.
4. Take all these things (roasted flour, dry fruits, fried beaten rice, and cardamom powder) in a large bowl, to this add powdered sugar and mix everything nicely.
5. To the above mixture add melted little hot clarified butter or ghee and mix it with clean hand.
6. Once you can make ladoo stop adding clarified butter and continue making ladoo.
7. After it cools down, store this in a clean, dry airtight container and enjoy whenever you feel like.
