Bajra Ladoo

Bajra Ladoos are scrumptious ladoos made with pearl millet . These are rich in iron , minerals and fibre. They are best consumed in winters as bajra and jaggery both keep you warm .

These ladoos are simple and quick to prepare . A basic bajra roti is prepared , which is broken down into pieces and then pulsed to get a uniform mixture . Grated jaggery is added to it and pulsed again . This helps in binding and combining . One can add dried fruits and nuts

  1. Super healthy and looks yummy too. I remember my mother making this when I was a child but somehow forgot this ladoos. I will try this for my kids.

    1. I have never used butter for ladoos , but go ahead try . Obviously the flavour will be different , maybe you can try in a small portion , do let me know the results , if you try .

  2. Wow they look super cute .. Looks so scrumptious and perfect for the cold weather here, I would love to munch on now. You have presented it so well di. The method sounds close to churma ladoo we make . delicious preparation and all your recipes are sure healthy always ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. wow looks pretty vaishali, nice way of making it from the rotlas! i thought it is made straight from the flour! Love that unusual color!!! i m feeling so hungry commenting on all these ladoos and pastas!!!

  4. This technique of making laddoo is new to me. Making rotla, cooking in and then powdering it. then making laddoo. I have a lot of bajra flour and since it is so hot these days I am unable to use it. Once monsoon arrives, will try these.

  5. I love this bajra laddu, In last Ganpati I offered them to bappa. very healthy laddu and having jaggery in them makes another point to consume guiltfree.
